Coast2Coast Rx announced today that San Mateo County residents saved $49,722 in December 2011 by using its comprehensive prescription discount card — contributing to a total of $1,265,000 million in savings on prescription drug costs since the program’s inception in the county in December 2009.

The dramatic savings is just the beginning — San Mateo County receives $1.25 for each prescription filled using the Coast2Coast Rx card for public programs, distinguishing this discount card from the rest. Residents who use the card are effectively reinvesting in their community while saving money on their prescription drug costs.

“The county of San Mateo is dedicated to providing quality services to our residents,” said San Mateo Supervisor Rose Jacobs Gibson. “The Coast2Coast Rx card, with its dual-benefits, is an effortless way of saving consumers money and serving as a source of revenue for the county.”

Coast2Coast Rx is a discount program, offered at no cost and with no eligibility restrictions or membership requirements. Individuals and families can save up to 75 percent on over 60,000 brand name and generic drugs by simply presenting the card when filling prescriptions at a chain or local pharmacy participating in the program. Consumers can also save money on dental, vision and hearing services, as well as diabetes supplies through a partner program.

“Our objective is to let all area consumers know about the advantages of the Coast2Coast Rx card and its long-term benefits to the community at large,” said Chief Marketing Officer Marty Dettelbach of Financial Marketing Concepts, Inc., the company that provides the discount prescription card. “The discount prescription card allows us to further our goals of improving health outcomes and providing savings to individuals and families while generating revenue for San Mateo County’s public programs.”

Coast2Coast Rx is currently working with public departments and local nonprofit agencies to increase awareness of the card’s benefits. Organizations and agencies providing social services to underserved populations are encouraged to use the Coast2Coast card as a money-saving resource.
