Contra Costa Times

Contra Costa County residents have saved more than $1 million on medications since a free discount prescription drug card was first offered here a year ago, county leaders have announced. The card on average gives users a 57 percent discount on nearly 60,000 generic and brand name drugs. All county residents, regardless of age or income, are eligible, said Patricia Tanquary, CEO of the Contra Costa Health Plan.
