The BigAppleRx card was launched in May and offers discounts on brand name and generic medications as well as some over-the-counter medications, including diabetes supplies.
On average, the card provides savings of 47 percent on prescription medications; 15 percent on brand name drugs and 53 percent on generic drugs.
Thousands of pharmacies are participating; go here to find those closest to you.
Markowitz will be at 552 Fulton St. between 1 and 2 p.m. Wednesday to hand out cards.
“With an increasing demand for quality, affordable health care, BigAppleRx helps ensure that discounts are available for life-improving -- and life-sustaining -- prescription drugs,” Markowitz said in a statement.
Print the card online at at BigAppleRx.com or pick one up at one of 700 locations.
