Gwinnett launches discount prescription savings program
– November 19, 2014
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.
