Coast2Coast Rx card announced today that the discount prescription card program has saved California consumers more than $22 million since its inception in the Golden State in 2008. Beginning with the adoption of the card in Ventura, the program has grown steadily to encompass 17 counties including the recently added Stanislaus County.
The Coast2Coast Rx card — a dynamic program with a host of benefits to consumers and the counties where they reside — saves individuals and families up to 75 percent on prescription costs and generates $1.25 per prescription filled for participating counties’ public programs. An increasing number of county officials are recognizing the card’s value to constituents and its ability to serve as a source of revenue — and with the California State Association of Counties recent endorsement, the program is growing at record rates.
“Adopting the Coast2Coast Rx card was an easy decision; as elected officials, our job includes serving our constituents by looking out for their interests and providing valuable public programs and services,” said Alameda County Supervisor Scott Haggerty. “In the face of shrinking budgets and rising expenses, the Coast2Coast program helps us accomplish both of these objectives.”
The benefits of theCoast2Coast Rx card program, its ease of use and the positive impact it has on participating communities, are making it the prescription discount card of choice. Offered at no cost and without eligibility restrictions to consumers, anyone can use the card to receive savings of up to 75 percent on over 60,000 brand name and generic drugs. Also available are discounts on certain dental, vision, hearing, lab services, diabetes supplies, and even some pet prescriptions. With no paper work to fill out, no required membership and no expiration date, the card is a simple way to save on health care expenses and can be a significant cost-saver for those without health insurance or those who are underinsured. It can be effective also for those with insurance who have high deductibles or prescriptions that are not covered under their current plan. In some instances the card can be used to offset the Medicare Part D “donut hole.”
“Getting the card to as many people as possible will benefit not only their household budgets and health outcomes but also their communities,” said Chief Marketing Officer Marty Dettelbach of Financial Marketing Concepts, Inc., the company that provides the discount prescription card. “The numbers speak for themselves — California consumers saved more than $22 million during the infancy of the program; imagine what is possible as more counties and their constituents adopt the card.”
