Butler County commissioners on Wednesday approved a prescription drug discount program for county residents.

The Coast2Coast RX card likely will be available in early fall. It will not cost county government anything.

The commissioners unanimously approved adoption of the card, which will primarily be given out in pharmacies.

Average savings with the card last year was 61 percent, according to Financial Marketing Concepts, the Florida company that issues the cards.

There are 59,000 pharmacies that accept the card, including all large chains, many regional stores and independent pharmacies.
