Out and About: A Weekend of Awareness for Coast2Coast Rx
April 26, 2012

Coast2Coast Rx was busy this weekend in San Diego, raising awareness for its prescription discount card program and distributing the card to the community. On April 21, Coast2Coast helped support Access to Independence at its annual benefit gala, a nonprofit organization that provides programs and services to individuals with disabilities and promotes options that empower them to choose and maintain their own lifestyles.

Like many organizations that promote independence and self-sufficiency, Access to Independence helps its consumers prepare for and secure gainful employment, a critical function as statistics show that people with disabilities experience disproportionate employment rates. According to Access to Independence, the unemployment rate for individuals with disabilities in California has been more than 74 percent. When unemployment is a barrier to affordable health care services and necessary prescriptions, consumers should remember that Coast2Coast Rx may be able to help them save money on their prescriptions and other health care services. Whether employed or not, spending an excessive amount on a prescription is unnecessary when the Coast2Coast Rx card can help save up to 75% on thousands of prescriptions as well as providing discounts on certain healthcare services such as dental, vision and hearing services, and diabetes supplies.

Access to Independence Gala

Following a night at the gala, representatives from Coast2Coast Rx distributed the free discount cards at the San Diego Padres’ baseball game. Community events are an excellent venue for increasing awareness of the program and reaching consumers who can benefit from the cost-saving features of the card. If any company or organization has an upcoming event at which it would like to distribute Coast2Coast Rx cards to its attendees, please contact the Alarus Agency to receive a supply of cards, posters and display stands. Diverse crowds like the one the game are a reminder that the discount card can be a benefit to anyone, not just those without healthcare – make sure to take a look at the other healthcare services and the huge inventory of prescriptions that are available at discounted rates. If your healthcare plan doesn’t cover all your needs, you may be able to save on your out-of-pocket costs with the Coast2Coast Rx card.

As always, stay updated by including Coast2Coast Rx on your social network on Facebook and Twitter.
