Posted Sep 17 2009 4:40pm
Looking for a bargain on prescriptions? Head to Walmart.com/pharmacy. Consumers anywhere in the United States can now buy a 90-day supply of certain “eligible” generic prescription drugs for $10 or a 30-day supply for $4. Mail order delivery is free.
The site lists the more than 300 drugs, and the dosages, eligible for the “$4 Prescription plan.” Higher dosages may cost more and prices may vary in some states. Patients can also order other medications through the free mail order system. Customers create an online account or drop into the pharmacy at a nearby Walmart to get their prescriptions filled. They can also call 1-800-2REFILL.
In a company press release, Dr. John Agwunobi, president of Walmart’s health and wellness division, is quoted as saying: “With this program, we’re able to provide consumers in every rural town or big city across America with more affordable prescription medicines through a convenient, free mail delivery system.”
This is just the kind of bargain people need more than ever.
