Sutter County and Coast2CoastRx are partnering to provide residents with an ability to save up to 75 percent on prescription costs while raising money for critical services in the community. The card includes discount benefits for dental, vision, veterinary and hearing services, lab and imaging tests and diabetes supplies and equipment.
You can find the card at participating pharmacies, at some county offices, or you can download a card.
The card, which has no expiration date and can be used as often as needed, covers the entire family. More than 60,000 drugs are included in the formulary, with savings up to 75 percent on brand name and generics. While the card is most helpful to people without medical insurance, sometimes the card provides more savings than high-deductible insurance plans, so be sure to investigate.
In some instances, the card can be used to help bridge the Medicare Part D “donut hole.”
There are no health, age or income restrictions; everyone qualifies. And there is no paperwork to fill out—the card is ready to use.
The card is provided by Financial Marketing Concepts Inc. of Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. Their network of more than 59,000 pharmacies includes all chains and most independents. The company negotiates discounts with the pharmacies in exchange for driving sales traffic. The patient saves money, Financial Marketing Concepts gets a percentage and, unlike other prescription discount card programs, the Coast2Coast card pays a royalty of $1.25 to Sutter County for every filled prescription resulting in a paid claim.
In 2014, the average discount per transaction was 60 percent.
Sutter County is the 30th California county to join the program. A similar program exists in Yuba County.
In a three year period in San Joaquin County, residents saved almost $3 million in prescription costs.
A total of four cases of confirmed or probable WNV illness have been reported to date in 2014 in Sutter County. Of these, one was the more serious neuroinvasive form and two were WNV-related deaths. A fifth possible case is awaiting confirmation.
WNV activity is high in California, including in Sutter County. The Sutter-Yuba Mosquito and Vector Control District continues to be active with mosquito control and monitoring mosquito activity and will continue until mosquito numbers and WNV activity drop.
