Wal-Mart Expands Drug Program – Will Mail your prescription to you – Pilot Program in Michigan
Posted May 07 2009 8:28pm
The pilot program begins in Michigan with Wal Mart and Sams Club Stores offering a 90 day supply of 300 generic drugs and they will mail them to you for free as well. So now you can go online get your refill and not have to leave the house. Wal Mart already offers many generics for $4.00 for a 30 day supply so over 3 months you save a couple bucks with the new $10.00 price. BD
Wal-Mart Stores Inc. is expanding a pilot prescription-drug program for companies, heating up the race among pharmacy retailers to transform the way drugs are priced and sold.
The discount retailer is offering businesses low-priced drugs if they sign up to buy directly from Wal-Mart's network of in-store pharmacies, rather than contracting to buy drugs through third parties known as pharmacy-benefit managers.
Wal-Mart's program follows other recent initiatives by big pharmacy retailers to grab market share by offering companies a less-expensive and simpler way to manage their drug plans.
