Rite Aid joins Univision-led prescription discount network


NEW YORK — Rite Aid has joined a prescription discount card program for Hispanics, the group offering the card said Tuesday.

Effective immediately, Rite Aid stores will accept the UnivisionFarmacia card, distributed by a partnership between media company Univision Enterprises, EnvisionRxOptions and HolaDoctor. The UnivisionFarmacia network includes more than 32,000 pharmacies around the country. Members receive discounts of up to 85% on generic drugs, with an average savings of 40% across brand and generic drugs, the group said.

"With over 4,600 stores in the United States, Rite Aid plays a significant role in the health and wellness of the communities it serves," Univision Enterprises SVP Rick Alessandri said. "This significant expansion in participating pharmacies in the UnivisionFarmacia network is essential to our goal of helping the Hispanic community gain greater access to the medications they need to achieve better health, particularly those who are uninsured and underinsured."
