Rx Card Saves Money
The Coast2Coast Rx Card program has saved Alameda County residents more than $7.5 million dollars since its start. Both the Board of Supervisors and the California State Association of Counties endorse the program.
The complimentary 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 Alameda County residents and their families, the program provides a royalty of $1.25 per prescription for Alameda County public programs.
Anyone in California can download a card of their county or any nearby county to use the card at all chain pharmacies and many independent pharmacies. More than 60,000 drugs are covered.
