County-endorsed discount card offers savings on healthcare services while creating revenue for public programs
(PRWEB) January 10, 2013
Coast2Coast Rx announced today that it recently reached its third anniversary of partnership with Santa Cruz County, offering its prescription discount card to residents. Since the program’s inception in Santa Cruz County in December 2009, residents have saved $783,585.
The Santa Cruz County Board of Supervisors approved the partnership with Coast2Coast Rx for the health and savings benefits that allow residents to better manage their health by having access to prescriptions—and other healthcare services— that they might not otherwise be able to afford. The card also benefits the community by generating revenue for county programs—$1.25 for each prescription filled.
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. Consumers enjoy savings of 10, 20 and even up to 75 percent on more than 60,000 brand name and generic prescription drugs. In some instances the card can be used to offset the Medicare Part D “donut hole.” The free card is available to everyone with no enrollment and no restrictions on age or health status. Additional benefits include discounts on vision, dental and hearing services, diabetes supplies and veterinary services and pet prescriptions.
“By partnering with the Santa Cruz County Board of Supervisors, together we can reach those citizens who need the card the most,” said Chief Marketing Officer Marty Dettelbach of Financial Marketing Concepts, Inc., the company that provides the discount prescription card. “The card is available to everyone—and most residents can benefit from the savings the program provides no matter what their economic or health insurance status may be.”
