Minnesota Residents Save Over $50,000 on Prescriptions with the Coast2Coast Rx Card Endorsed by The Association of Minnesota Counties
Date:1/7/2013

Ponte Vedra Beach, FL (PRWEB) January 07, 2013

The providers of the Coast2Coast Rx card today announced that, with the addition of several Minnestoa counties that endorsed its free discount card in 2012 and with the Association of Minnesota Counties (AMC) Board of Directors' endorsement of the card last year, residents have collectively saved more than $54,000. The free discount prescription program allows constituents to receive considerably reduced prices on prescription drugs and other health care services. Currently, the Boards of Commissioners in Blue Earth, Douglas, Redwood, Stearns, Steele, Wadena and Watonwan counties have approved the program and Hennepin County, with the largest population of Minnesota counties, recently approved the program and will launch the card in the near future

The Coast2Coast Rx card is the discount prescription card of choice for the AMC for several important reasons: it saves consumers up to 75 percent on prescription drug costs and offers discounts on additional healthcare services so that consumers can better manage their health needs, and unlike other discount prescription cards it requires no expense or additional work by county personnel and the Coast2Coast Rx Card gives back to the community by providing $1.25 to the participating counties every time the card is used.

The Association of Minnesota Counties (AMC), a non-partisan statewide organization that assists the 87 counties of Minnesota by ensuring effective and efficient county governance, sees the Coast2Coast Rx card as an effective tool to reduce the costs of their taxpayer’s healthcare costs while at the same time alleviating some of the pressures on county government and increasing revenues for all counties involved, says Executive Director Jeff Spartz. “This comprehensive program can easily help our members in public service further their missions to provide resources for constituents’ health and finances,” said Spartz. Spartz added, “Many people don’t have comprehensive prescription coverage. These discount cards may make it possible for people to obtain much-needed prescriptions that prevent more expensive and prolonged health problems which, of course, significantly detract from the quality of people’s lives."

Coast2Coast Rx, at no cost to the participating municipalities or to consumers, provides savings on thousands of prescription drugs while improving health outcomes by making the card available to all with no restrictions on age, economic status, or existing health conditions.

With an average nationwide savings of 60 percent, the card can offer significant relief to those without health insurance but it also can be effective for those with insurance who pay high deductibles or need prescriptions that are not covered under their current plan. In some cases the card can be used to help alleviate the expenses of the Medicare Part D “donut hole.”

“The Coast2Coast Rx card saves consumers nationwide millions of dollars each year on their prescriptions and health care costs, and with the increased participation of cities, counties and townships, we can maximize our contributions to our partner municipalities,” said Chief Marketing Officer Marty Dettelbach of Financial Marketing Concepts, Inc., the company that provides the discount prescription card. “To that end, we encourage those serving Minnesota residents to follow the lead of the Association of Minnesota Counties in endorsing the Coast2Coast Rx card for the benefit of their constituents.”

Consumers are invited to take part in the community discussion and stay up-to-date on health care news by adding Coast2Coast Rx to their social networks on Facebook and Twitter.
