StephensCounty is participating in a new prescription card program that is open to county residents.
The county has joined the “Coast2Coast” prescription card program.
According to the program, the Coast2Coast card will allow all county residents, regardless of income, age, or health status to participate and potentially save on some medication costs.
Officials said that if a particular drug is not covered under a person’s health plan, this card could help them save on the prescription.
Representatives for the Coast2Coast program stated that the card is free of charge, may be used at most pharmacies in StephensCounty, and includes over 60,000 drugs in its formulary.
Stephens County Clerk Beth Rider said that county residents can obtain a “Coast2Coast” prescription card in a number of ways.
“The cards are available at the Stephens County Historic Courthouse, Senior Center, the Health Department, or they can go online at www.coast2coast.rx.com, download one, and print it,” said Rider.
People can also view participating locations at www.coast2coastrx.com.
Coast2Coast representatives said that numerous other Georgia counties, including Banks and Habersham, participate in this particular program.
