Amazon Pharmacy on Tuesday said it is launching a prescription drug discount program for Prime members that allows patients to receive all of their eligible, generic medications for $5 a month — that’s $5 total, not per medication, and it includes free delivery.
The retail giant said that Prime members now have affordable access to generic medications that treat more than 80 common health conditions, including high blood pressure, anxiety and acid reflux.
“Prime members already get fast, free delivery on prescription medications, and RxPass is one more way to save with Amazon Pharmacy. Any customer who pays more than $10 a month for their eligible medications will see their prescription costs drop by 50% or more, plus, they save time by skipping a trip to the pharmacy,” John Love, vice president of Amazon Pharmacy, said. “We are excited to offer our customers surprisingly simple, low pricing on the eligible medications they need each month.”
There are no hidden fees and no markups to the $5 per month subscription. RxPass is available starting today in most U.S. states.
To enroll in RxPass, Prime members can go to Amazon.com or Amazon’s mobile app to create or update their Amazon Pharmacy profile. Once there, customers will be guided through a simple sign-up process that verifies their eligibility and prescription information.
If customers have questions during the enrollment process or after a prescription arrives, Amazon pharmacists are on hand 24/7 to coordinate with a customer’s doctor or help with refills.
Amazon Pharmacy offers choice and convenience, whether customers are paying with insurance or not. When not using insurance, Prime members now have two innovative, affordable options to pay for prescription medications.
Alternately, Prime members can save with the Prime prescription savings benefit — available for no additional fee — to get discounts up to 80% off generic and 40% off brand name medications at more than 60,000 participating pharmacies nationwide, including Amazon Pharmacy and the PillPack by Amazon Pharmacy service.
