Card soon to help residents pay less for prescriptions

COBB COUNTY -- A press conference between the Cobb County Board of Commissioners and representatives of the Coast2Coast Rx Card will launch a new drug discount program on Tuesday afternoon at the Commission Chambers in Marietta.

All cardholders, according to the Cobb County Government, regardless of age, income or health condition can save on prescription medications. While it is not a form of insurance coverage, the program is free, applicable to families, and void of enrollment fees, memberships or expiration dates. Cobb will be Georgia's 22nd county to participate in Coast2Coast. Participants can use the card for prescriptions that are not covered by various insurance plans, or to tackle high deductibles.

Those wanting to enroll can pick up a discount card at Bexar Pharmacies, libraries and county health facilities, or print a copy at coast2coastrx.com. In some cases, the card may be applied to veterinary services, vision and hearing coverage, needs for diabetes aid, lab tests and imaging.
