Forest Park residents with a Coast2CoastRX prescription card can use that handy little item when they get a flu shot.
The cards are free and for everyone regardless of where they live, their income, age, or health status—even if they are insured. They are accepted at any pharmacy.
There is no paperwork to fill out and no registration process. Residents simply present the card when paying for prescriptions or flu shots. If individuals have insurance, they can present both cards and opt for the coverage that's better.
The Coast2Coast card also provides 50-80 percent discounts for some lab and imaging tests, and discounts on some dental, veterinary and vision services. Discounts on diabetes supplies and equipment, as well as hearing services, are also available. The card can be used with mail order services.
Seniors on Medicare Part D prescription coverage may find it beneficial by saving money on some medicine as part of their "donut hole" gap in coverage.
The card is available at Forest Park village hall, 517 Des Plaines Ave. For more information, call 708-366-2323.
