TREASURE COAST --
Coast2Coast Rx discount prescription cards can now be used to save up to 30 percent on seasonal flu shots.
Consumers can use their cards in the same way they normally would for prescriptions. Use the pharmacy locator tool on the Coast2Coast Rx website to contact the nearest pharmacy.
As a nationwide prescription discount program, with the endorsements of more than 280 municipalities, Coast2Coast Rx allows consumers to save millions on their prescriptions and other healthcare services each year. Because there are no restrictions on age, income status or existing health conditions, all consumers are eligible for the benefits of the card.
Those with no insurance coverage, the underinsured and even those with high deductibles or expenses --such as certain prescriptions or flu vaccines -- not covered by their health plan may save significantly by using the free program.
In some cases, even Medicare Part D patients experiencing the "donut hole" can use the card to help relieve their out-of-pocket expenses.
There is no membership application or paperwork required to acquire a Coast2Coast Rx card, which can be used by an entire family for convenience. The card is often available through public departments and nonprofit agencies in participating municipalities.
For immediate access, consumers can print a card directly from the Coast2Coast Rx website at http://coast2coastrx.com/index.php/print-free-card/.
