Gwinnett launches discount prescription savings program

Story Link:

The Coast2Coast Rx prescription discount program has launched in Gwinnett County. In September, the Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners approved an agreement with the company to offer prescription drug discount cards to residents. The new card allows all County residents, regardless of income, age, or health status, to participate in the program and save on the cost of their medications. Distributed free of charge, the card may be used at participating pharmacy chains and independent pharmacies in Gwinnett County and includes more than 60,000 prescription drugs in its formulary.

There are no eligibility requirements to obtain the prescription drug discount card, which officials expect will benefit residents who are uninsured or underinsured or face high insurance deductibles. If a particular drug isn’t covered under a person’s health plan, he or she can use the card to save on those prescriptions.
