Medicare Part D prescription drug plans

After reading one person's question on why seniors cannot use their prescription discount card instead of a Part D prescription coverage plan I was very confused with the answers provided.
I understand that if you do not join a Part D plan by a certain date you will pay a penalty charge, which then would add the amount of your penalty charge to your Part D plan if at a later date you decided to join one.
My prescription costs now I am on Medicare seem to be a very good co-pay price through Walgreens, so if you have already joined a Part D insurance plan, and are paying a set amount every month, but you choose not to use it, then could you use the Walgreens discount card anyway?
