Anne Arundel County saves on prescription drug contract

August 30, 2012

Anne Arundel County's newly renegotiated employee and retiree prescription drug contract with CVS/Caremark will not only save taxpayers $18 million over three years, but will also provide excellent benefits for both county government and school system employees ("Anne Arundel County to save millions on drug costs," Aug. 22).

This beneficial collaboration between the county government and the school system is but one example of County Executive John R. Leopold's numerous cost-saving initiatives that have been incorporated into the county's operating budget over the past six years, creating savings that have amounted to over $70 million dollars for county taxpayers.
