Tom Green County Introduces Discount Prescription Drug Card
SAN ANGELO, TX — Tom Green County is launching a discount prescription drug program that will aid every Tom Green County resident with savings on prescription drugs. You can register for your card here.
Once launched, the new Coast2Coast Rx prescription discount card will allow all Tom Green County residents, regardless of income, age, or health status to participate in the program and save on the cost of their prescriptions. This program has saved cardholders throughout the nation an average of 65 percent in 2016 on the cost of prescription drugs, according to .
The Rx card will be distributed free of charge and may be used at all pharmacy chains and most independent pharmacies in Tom Green County.
“With healthcare costs on the rise, prescription drug discounts will help ease some of the financial burdens individuals and families are facing at a time when they need it the most,” said Dianna Spieker, Tom Green County Treasurer. “There are no eligibility requirements so the Rx card is expected to have a sizeable impact on uninsured or underinsured residents. If a particular drug isn’t covered under a person’s health plan – they can use the card to save on those prescriptions.”
“A welcome additional benefit to this Rx program is the ability to save money for our fur babies” said Spieker. “Our pets are part of our families and we need to take care of them as well as ourselves”
Savings for residents through the Rx program comes at no cost to the County. Besides the discounts on prescriptions, the card also provides discounts on dental and vision care, hearing aids and supplies as well as discounts for lab and imaging tests -- further helping residents save even more money on their healthcare costs for these services.
“This is going to be a good benefit to support better health for the residents of Tom Green County. We appreciate the work of Dianna Spieker and the County in implementing this program,” said Staci Wetz Chief Financial Officer at Shannon Medical Center. The Shannon Medical Facilities will also be offering the program to its patrons.
“We are pleased to work with the County to help individuals, their families and pets combat the rising cost of healthcare,” says Zach Barrett, Southwest Division Marketing Representative of Coast2CoastRx of Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, issuer of the Coast2Coast Rx free discount card. “We appreciate all that the County and local pharmacies are doing to help those in need.”
The Coast2Coast Rx card will be available for residents at, most participating pharmacies, governmental offices, libraries and health facilities within Tom Green County. Residents will also be able to print the Rx card, check their prescription prices and view the nearest participating locations at Tom Green County. Register for your card here.
