We are concerned about the rising cost of prescription drugs and believe that many individuals and families need programs like this one... because nobody should have to choose between their prescriptions or putting food on the table.
Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. (PRWEB) January 15, 2013
The providers of the Coast2Coast Rx card, a discount prescription drug program, announced today that St. Lucie County residents saved more than $1.5 million since the Board of County Commissioners launched the program in June 2011.
Coast2Coast Rx is a no-cost and easy-to-use prescription discount card used nationwide for savings of up to 75 percent on over 60,000 brand name and generic drugs and other health care services. In addition to these benefits, the card serves as a source of revenue for county programs; for each prescription filled using a Coast2Coast Rx card, St. Lucie County receives $1.25 for public programs—at no cost to the taxpayer and without added commitment or responsibility required by county personnel.
The Coast2Coast Rx Card allows for all county residents, regardless of income, age, or health status to participate in the program and save on the cost of their medications. For the uninsured and those facing the expense of needed prescriptions with insufficient coverage or high deductibles under a current plan, the card can be a significant cost-saver. In some cases the discounts can help alleviate the out-of-pocket costs that Medicare patients sometimes encounter in the “Part D donut hole.” The same card also provides residents discounts on health services such as vision, dental, and hearing care, diabetes supplies, lab and imaging tests, and even veterinary care and pet prescriptions.
“We are concerned about the rising cost of prescription drugs and believe that many individuals and families need programs like this one to be able to afford the medications that they need; because nobody should have to choose between their prescriptions or putting food on the table,” said Chief Marketing Officer Marty Dettelbach of Financial Marketing Concepts, Inc., the company that provides the discount prescription card. “Over $1 million in savings for St. Lucie County in 2012 alone demonstrates the enthusiasm for the card, which has the potential to greatly impact the county as awareness and use of the card increase.”
With no membership paperwork required, residents can simply pick up a card which is currently available at many of the county’s public buildings, including the courthouse and library branches, as well one of 59,000+ participating pharmacies nationwide, including major chains and many independent establishments. Residents immediately access a free card by downloading and printing it from the Coast2Coast website at http://www.coast2coastrx.com/stlucie.
