  • Jones County Board of Commissioners Celebrate Prescription Savings Success
    Comments Off on Jones County Board of Commissioners Celebrate Prescription Savings Success

    The Coast2Coast Rx Card program has saved residents $194,819.79 dollars on their prescriptions since the launch of the Coast2Coast Rx Card. The program launched in July 2012 with the endorsement of the Jones County Board of Commissioners.

    “The Jones County Board of Commissioners is very pleased to have approved distribution of the Coast2Coast Rx Free Discount Prescription Card to assist Jones County residents with the cost of their prescription medications,” said Preston Hawkins, Chairman of the Jones County Board of Commissioners. “ We believe that this card will offer savings to our residents that are not insured, underinsured, or who have plans that do not cover a certain drug. In the 42 months that this Free Prescription Card has been offered, our citizens using the card have saved 71.2% on their prescriptions.”

    The free discount prescription card program provides residents and their families with a number of benefits that produce immediate discounts on prescriptions as well as dental, vision, veterinary and hearing services. The discount card also offers discounts on various lab and imaging services; diabetes supplies and equipment as well as pet prescriptions. Not only does the Coast2Coast Rx program facilitate discounts on healthcare resources for Jones County residents and their families — the program provides a royalty of $1.25 per prescription for Jones County public programs.

    “We are pleased to work with Jones County, which prides itself on providing programs that enrich the lives of its residents, in assisting its families with beneficial discounts on health related needs. It is of utmost importance to the Jones County Board of Commissioners and the Coast2Coast Rx program to help those in need of obtaining prescriptions and other health care related services,” said Martin Dettelbach, Chief Marketing Officer of the Coast2Coast Rx program. He added, “We look forward to continuing and growing our relationship with Jones County and maintaining savings on health services for Jones County families.”

    The Coast2Coast Rx card allows all consumers, regardless of income, age, or health status to participate in the program and save on the cost of their medications. The program has saved cardholders throughout the nation an average of 65% in 2015 on the cost of prescription drugs. The Rx card is distributed free of charge and may be used at all pharmacy chains and most independent pharmacies in Florida and includes over 60,000 drugs in its formulary.
