Prescription Card FAQs

Here are the answers to frequently asked questions about the prescription cards:

Print a copy of the card!




What is the name of this discount prescription card?

The name of the card is the Coast2Coast Rx Card.

Do I have to register the card before using it?
No. Cardholders simply take the card to a participating pharmacy.

How many pharmacies are in the network?
There are more than 59,000 pharmacies in the network, and includes all major pharmacy chains and many independents in all 50 states.

How does a cardholder determine which pharmacies participate in the network?
There is a list of participating pharmacies at: http://www.coast2coastrx.com/.  Virtually every major chain and many independents are in the network, so locating a pharmacy is simple.

Does a cardholder need more than one card for his or her family?
No. A cardholder can use one card for his or her entire family but it might be prudent for each spouse to have a card; you can print one or more free cards by going to the website at: www.coast2coastrx.com
 
Is the discount prescription card insurance?
No. The Coast2Coast Rx Card is not insurance nor is it intended to replace insurance. A cardholder that is covered by health insurance will probably receive the greatest benefit by using his or her health insurance prescription card, but it does pay to compare cards.
 
Can a health insurance prescription card be used at the same time with the Coast2Coast Rx Card?
No. Only one card can be used when filling a prescription. However, if a prescription is not covered under a particular plan, then someone may go to a participating network pharmacy and use the card to obtain a discount.
 
Are some drugs covered under the Coast2Coast Rx Card that other prescription plans do not cover?
Yes, occasionally. In the event that a health insurance prescription plan does not provide a discount for a particular drug, it is likely that our card will provide a discount for that drug, as more than 60,000 formularies are included in our discount prescription card.
 
How much does a cardholder save using the Coast2Coast Rx Card?
A cardholder can save up to 75 percent on an individual prescription. Generic brands offer a higher discount than name brands.
 
Are there limits on usage?
No. A cardholder and his or her family may use the card as often as needed. Family members include all dependents, including grandchildren.
 
Is there an expiration date for the card?
No. There is no termination date for the card.
 
Does everyone qualify to use the card?
Yes. There are no restrictions, and anyone over the age of 18 may use the card. This does not prevent a parent or guardian from obtaining discounts on prescriptions for their dependents who are under the age of 18 years.
 
If I have a health insurance plan with a prescription card, can I use your card if the prescription is cheaper using your card?
Yes, however, unless the cardholder has not yet reached his or her annual insurance deductible, it is most likely that he or she will want to use the insurance benefits. If the cardholder does use our card instead of his or her prescription card, then the cardholder will most likely need to send a copy of the receipt to the insurance company to ensure that the amount paid is applied to the annual deductible. If the cardholder registers our card with his or her pharmacy, and it is the same pharmacy that his or her health prescription plan is registered – the cardholder will have to indicate which plan is being used for future prescription purchases.
 
What if the cardholder has a high deductible health insurance plan?
The cardholder may use our card to save on prescriptions until he or she reaches the deductible amount. The cardholder may need to submit receipts to the insurance company.
 
What if the cardholder is a Medicare Part D participant?
Medicare Part D participants are usually age 65 and over. There is a hole in participant coverage that is called the “donut hole,” and Medicare participants can pay  up to $1,200 per year out of pocket. Our card can help participants in the “donut” phase save on their prescriptions if they don't have supplemental coverage.
