As a rural electric cooperative Plumas-Sierra REC (PSREC) provides not only affordable, reliable electricity, we are also committed to providing our members and communities with services and benefits that improve their quality of life. PSREC offers a member benefit program, Co-op Connections, in conjunction with Touchstone Energy Cooperatives, a national alliance made up of more than 660 consumer-owned electric cooperatives in 46 states. Through this program, you can receive discounts on products and services from participating local and national businesses. The Co-op Connections program is another benefit to being a member of your local electric cooperative, and is absolutely free. For more information on the many offers available, please visit: www.connections.coop.
How much will I save?
The discounts save you 10% to 60% on prescriptions at local and national pharmacies. Check with your local pharmacy to see if they are participating. If not, check to see if they offer other discount options.
How much does the feature cost?
Your pharmacy discounts are provided as part of your Co-op Connections program at no cost.
Does everyone in my family need an individual card?
No. One card may be used by the entire family.
I’ve lost my card. How can I get a replacement?
Please contact PSREC’s Member Services Department at (800) 555-2207.
How are these pharmacy discounts different from traditional prescription insurance?
This plan is not insurance; it is a pharmacy discount offer. The card provides immediate discounts at the pharmacy. Upon presenting your card to the pharmacist, you will pay the lower of a discounted price or the pharmacy’s regular retail price. There are no forms to fill out and no limit to the number of times you can use the card. These discounts are available only at participating retail pharmacies.
Can I use my Co-op Connections card with my current insurance benefit to reduce my costs?
Your card cannot be used in conjunction with insurance. However, use your card to purchase prescriptions not covered by your insurance plans at a discounted rate.
Where can I get a list of pharmacies that accept the card?
The Co-op Connections card is accepted at over 60,000 retail pharmacies locally and nationwide. You can find participating pharmacy locations at www.locateproviders.com, or by calling (800) 800-7616.
Will I always receive the lowest price?
Yes. You will receive the best price available to you through this program at the pharmacy. On occasion, pharmacies will price a particular medication lower than the discount rate provided by the card. If that occurs, you will receive the lower price.
Can I find out the discounted price of my prescriptions before going to the pharmacy?
Yes, if you know the name, strength and quantity of the medication, you can find the discounted price of the medication by visiting www.rxpricequotes.com.
Why did the price of my prescription change since my last purchase?
To Locate Providers:
Drug prices are different from pharmacy to pharmacy. Even chains have different prices in their stores depending on the population they are servicing. Additionally, manufacturers’ drug prices change periodically.
• Call (800) 800-7616 if you have questions or need a provider.
• Log onto www.locateproviders.com and use the Group and Member numbers from the back of your card to search for providers.

Pharmacy discounts are not insurance, and are not intended as a substitute for insurance.
