SIOUX FALLS, S.D. Lewis Drug recently launched a new generics prescription drug program called the First Stop Pharmacy Club, according to a report in the Sioux Falls daily, the Argus Leader, published Friday.
The program, which costs $10 to join, includes as many as 400 generic prescription drugs available for $4 for a 30-day supply. Other features of the Pharmacy Club program include discounts on everyday basics such as milk and bread and a $10 Lewis coupon when you sign up.
"We are trying to help the community fight pricing on generic drugs and work with suppliers in trying to negotiate better pricing and pass that on to consumers," Bob Meyer, Lewis Drug merchandise manager, told Argus Leader. "In a tough economy, we are trying to give back to the community which has supported us for more than 60 years."
Customers that are enrolled in a publicly funded health program such as Medicare, Medicaid and TRICARE are not eligible to participate in Club benefits pertaining to discounts on prescription drugs, the company states on its web site.
