Golden Buckeye cardholders have saved an estimated $2.5 billion since 1976. All Ohioans age 60 or older, as well as adults age 18-59 who have disabilities as defined by Social Security, are eligible for a free Golden Buckeye card. How to Get a Card Ohio residents who hold current Ohio Driver Licenses or State ID cards automatically receive their Golden Buckeye cards in the month of their 60th birthdays. Individuals who do not have a current license or State ID, as well as people under age 60 who are eligible due to disability, or who otherwise do not receive their card automatically, may apply for a card at most public libraries and senior centers. Due to ID, age and disability (when appropriate) verification requirements, you cannot apply for a Golden Buckeye card online or by phone. How to Get a Replacement Card If your Golden Buckeye card has been lost, stolen or damaged, call 1-866-301-6446 to request a replacement. Where to Use Your Card Since its inception, the Golden Buckeye program has been a small business program. Thus, you are most likely to find locally owned small businesses who honor the card. Merchants of all types (e.g., restaurants, retail, auto care, medical and more) voluntarily offer special savings or deals for Golden Buckeye cardholders. [The savings percentage off a total purchase or special deals on certain products or services.] Limitations may apply. Ask anywhere you spend money about a Golden Buckeye or senior discount. Some participating merchants display the Golden Buckeye logo on their door, in their window or at the checkout, but many do not. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide a list of participating merchants because it is constantly changing. However, you’ll find some examples of the types of businesses that offer the card below. Please check back, as these lists are updated often. Visit our page on Facebook for more business suggestions and tips. Your Golden Buckeye card includes the Ohio’s Best Rx prescription drug discount program. If you lack prescription drug insurance, have coverage limits or have a prescription that isn’t covered by your insurance, your Golden Buckeye/Ohio’s Best Rx card could offer significant savings over regular retail prices. You may qualify for Ohio’s Best Rx, even if you do not qualify for Golden Buckeye. Call toll-free 1-866-923-7879 or visit www.ohiobestrx.org for more information. 24 www.MedinaSeniorServices.org 25
