BOISE, Idaho Albertson’s will expand its generic prescription drug discount program, the supermarket chain announced Tuesday.

The Boise, Idaho-based chain said it would expand its Rx-tra Savings program by charging $10.99 for 90-day supplies of more than 500 generic drugs. It has also added new medications to the program, including drugs to treat cholesterol, hypertension and women’s health.
