The administrators of Coast2Coast Rx say San Bernardino County residents saved more than $997,000 in 2012 on prescription drug costs by using the program’s free prescription discount card.

The program — approved by the county and launched about a year ago — also benefits the community by generating $1.25 for each prescription filled.

The card is used by 280 governmental entities nationwide.

Coast2Coast Rx has no restrictions on age, income or health status.

Consumers enjoy savings of up to 75 percent on more than 60,000 brand name and generic prescription drugs. Other benefits include discounts on vision, dental and hearing services, diabetes supplies and veterinary services and pet prescriptions.

In some cases, even Medicare Part D patients experiencing the “donut hole” can use the card to offset out-of-pocket expenses. With no membership paperwork required, residents can simply pick up a card from locations around the county or download and print a card from the Coast2Coast website to use at one of 59,000+ participating pharmacies nationwide.
