California residents have saved more than $160 million on their prescriptions over the past five years by using the Coast2Coast Rx Card. This cost-savings program allows all California residents – regardless of income, age or health status – to save on the costs of their medications.
San Diego County residents have saved more than $40 million since the program was adopted. Ventura County, the first county to enter the program, has seen its residents save more than $14 million since 2011. Santa Barbara County and Alameda County residents have saved nearly $13 million and $10 million, respectively, since their launches. Overall, 32 California Counties have implemented the Coast2Coast RX program. Nationwide, the program is saving cardholders an average of 60 percent on the cost of prescription drugs.
The California State Association of Counties (CSAC) has endorsed the program. According to CSAC Executive Director Matt Cate, “The Coast2Coast RX Program has proven to be a valuable asset to California residents. We encourage all counties to participate in this program that significantly reduces prescription costs while enhancing the health and well-being of our residents.”
The Rx card, which includes more than 60,000 drugs in its formulary, is distributed free of charge and may be used at all pharmacy chains and most independent pharmacies in California.
