Former Scarsdale Mayor Carolyn Stevens has signed on as Executive Director of the Scarsdale Chamber of Commerce. She is leading this growing group with Chamber President Lewis Arlt of Houlihan Lawrence. The two have been very successful at recruiting new members from the Scarsdale business community and a complete list of members is on the Chamber website.
The Chamber will be renewing an old Scarsdale tradition of hosting a “Newcomers Picnic” at the Scarsdale Women’s Club on Drake Road on Sunday September 25th from 1-4 pm. Businesses, civic organizations, volunteer groups, neighborhood associations and an array of non-profits will be asked to attend and take tables to introduce themselves to new residents. People who have purchased homes within the last two years or rented within the past year will be invited to the event. If you would like to attend, save the date.
In other news, the Chamber Rx card, a new free prescription assistance drug card program is available. Not only can the Scarsdale Chamber Rxcard offer uninsured and underinsured residents up to 75% off their prescription drugs (including those for pets), it can also give discounts of up to 50% on prescription eyeglasses, teeth whitening, diabetic supplies, Lasik surgery, and hearing aids. The card can also be used by people who have health insurance coverage with no prescription benefits, a common occurrence in many health savings accounts (HSA) and high-deductible health plans. The discount does not apply to your co-pays but can be used for non-covered drugs.
There are no membership restrictions and there's no application or paperwork. It is offered through United Networks of America (UNA), one of the largest providers of value-added managed care products and services in the United States with more than 240,000 participating providers serving more than 72.4 million members with 56,000 national and regional pharmacies in place.
Anyone interested in obtaining a card or searching drug pricing and participating pharmacies can visit the Scarsdale Chamber of Commerce website, or stop by Houlihan Lawrence at 32 Popham Road and ask the receptionist for your own free card.
