St. Johns County to offer Coast2Coast Rx discount prescription savings program


St. Johns County has partnered with Coast2Coast Rx to offer a free discount prescription savings program.

The new Coast2Coast Rx card will allow all county residents to participate and save on the cost of their medication regardless of income, age or health status. Pets and people living outside of the county are able to take part in this program, which saved cardholders throughout the country an average of 65 percent on the cost of medications in 2016. The Rx card includes more than 60,000 drugs in its formulary and is distributed free of charge. It can be used at all pharmacy chains and most independent pharmacies in St. Johns County.

“With the continual rise in healthcare costs showing no signs of slowing down, we embraced the opportunity to partner with a local St. Johns County company to offer our residents a discount prescription program,” said Shawna Novak, director of St. Johns County Health and Human Services. “Provided at no cost to the county or those who participate, the program offers additional benefits, is an excellent program for residents lacking prescription drug coverage and those required to purchase maintenance drugs on a regular basis.”

In addition to the discount on prescriptions, the card also provides discounts on dental, vision, veterinary and hearing services as well as discounts on lab and imaging tests and diabetes supplies and equipment for all family members. Providing these savings through the program will come at no expense to the county.

“We are pleased to work with the county to help individuals, their families and pets combat the rising cost of healthcare,” said Steve Rohm, national sales manager of Financial Marketing Concepts, Inc. of Ponte Vedra Beach, who act as the issuer of the Coast2Coast Rx 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 County health facilities. Residents will also be able to print the Rx card and view the nearest participating locations at
