The Coast2Coast Rx card is a simple way for residents to get significant discounts on prescriptions needed to manage their healthcare - Marty Dettelbach

The administrators of Coast2Coast Rx announced today that residents of San Bernardino County, Calif. have saved more than $997,000 in 2012 on prescription drug costs by using the program’s free prescription discount card. The program—approved by the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors and launched about a year ago—also benefits the community by generating $1.25 for each prescription filled.

The no-cost Coast2Coast Rx card serves two purposes: first, providing residents with significant discounts on prescriptions and other health care services as a means to better manage their health; and second, creating a source of revenue to support county programs. These features have made it the prescription discount card of choice for about 280 governmental entities nationwide.

Coast2Coast Rx is a free, comprehensive program used statewide for savings on thousands of prescriptions and additional health care services. With no restrictions on age, income, or health status, everyone is immediately eligible to use the plan. Consumers enjoy savings of up to 75 percent on more than 60,000 brand name and generic prescription drugs. Other benefits include discounts on vision, dental and hearing services, diabetes supplies and veterinary services and pet prescriptions.

The card can be a significant cost-saver for those without health insurance—and it can be equally as effective for those with insurance who have high deductibles or require a prescription not covered under their current plan. In some cases even Medicare Part D patients experiencing the “donut hole” can use the card to help offset their out-of-pocket expenses. With no membership paperwork required, residents can simply pick up a card from locations around the county or download and print a card from the Coast2Coast website to use at one of 59,000+ participating pharmacies nationwide, including major chains and many independent establishments.

“By offering the Coast2Coast Rx card in partnership with the County Board of Supervisors, we are working to improve access to healthcare for all residents,” said Chief Marketing Officer Marty Dettelbach of Financial Marketing Concepts, Inc., the company that provides the discount prescription card. “The Coast2Coast Rx card is a simple way for residents to get significant discounts on prescriptions needed to manage their healthcare.”

Non-profits and organizations providing social services to underserved populations are also encouraged to utilize and distribute the Coast2Coast Rx card to use as a health care tool and money-saving resource.
