What is this Free Prescription Drug Card and How is United Way Involved?
We have partnered with Buncombe County and the Coast2Coast Rx Card to provide a free discount prescription card to area residents. The card is free - there never will be a charge for the card. Simply present the card at a participating pharmacy and you'll save up to 75% on your prescription costs. This card is personalized but anyone can use it and it is not limited by county or location.
You can also come by our office to get a card or, better yet, get a pile to distribute at your next family get-together, faith community or a neighborhood meeting.
