The card may also be used for pet medications that are also used to treat a human condition that can be obtained from a participating pharmacy.
There is no waiting period. Tigard residents simply present their card at a participating pharmacy. More than 59,000 pharmacies nationwide participate in the program, including the major chains as well as many independent pharmacies.
