Oklahoma Drug Card

The Oklahoma Drug Card was launched to help the uninsured and the underinsured citizens of Oklahoma afford their prescription medications. The program may also be used by people who have health insurance coverage with no prescription benefits, which is common in many health savings accounts (HSA) and high deductible health plans. Additionally, people who have prescription coverage may use this program for non-formulary or non-covered drugs.


The Oklahoma Drug Card is being funded through the participation of pharmacies and pharmaceutical companies. The program has received support from both the public and private sectors. To date the Oklahoma Drug Card has saved Oklahoma residents $20 million over just seven years. The Oklahoma Municipal League and its member cities and towns are working with the program to create awareness.

Utility Service Partners, Inc.

The National League of Cities (NLC) Service Line Warranty Program, administered by Utility Service Partners, Inc., has been an OMSC Licensed Business since 2010. Service Line Warranties of America is the consumer-facing brand for Utility Service Partners, Inc.

OMSC supports the NLC Service Line Warranty Program for Oklahoma communities for these main reasons:

  1. The program educates homeowners as to their service line responsibilities.
  2. The added value of the service itself – studies show most homeowners have not set aside funds for unexpected line repairs.
  3. The program is offered at no cost to the cities, who often receive a share of the revenues collected.
  4. It is the only warranty program to market to residents only with the city’s permission.
  5. It is the only warranty program endorsed by the National League of Cities.

The NLC Service Line Warranty Program partners with more than 245 cities in North America and has helped more than 100,000 homeowners save over $64 million in service line repair costs.
