Chain pharmacy Rite Aid is offering one free 30-day generic prescription to customers in Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina, in exchange for enrollment in the drug store's Rite Aid Rx Savings Card.

Patients already signed up for the card are also eligible for a free script, from a list of more than 300 commonly prescribed generic drugs. The offer is available through June 30, 2009.

“The continuing economic crisis has caused many Americans to lose their jobs and their health insurance,” said Bill Wolfe, group vice president, Rite Aid, in a statement. “It is critical for patients with chronic diseases to stay on their therapy, and generic pharmaceuticals represent a cost effective way to do that.”

The Rite Aid Rx Savings card is free, and does not require any membership fees, according to the statement.
