Publix starts low-priced prescription service

By Gisselle Gaitan - 01/23/2018
Publix Pharmacy has announced the launch of a new low-priced program aimed towards providing up to a 90-day supply of commonly prescribed generic medications to customers. Medications used to treat a variety of health issues are to be included in the deal with each costing no more than $7.50.

“Our founder, George Jenkins, taught us to take care of people and our communities, and making needed medications more affordable provides us this opportunity,” Maria Brous, Publix's director of media and community relations, said. “Healthcare costs continue to rise, so sometimes people have a hard time filling their prescriptions as regularly as they should. We believe this low price will help encourage customers to follow their doctor’s orders, so they can experience better health outcomes.”

Regardless of patient insurance coverage, the price is set to remain the same, the Lakeland, Fla.-based company said. The program is set to include 29 generic medications with 85 dosage options for treatments of:

  • heart health/cardiovascular;

  • diabetes;

  • cholesterol;

  • mental health;

  • seizure disorders;

  • Parkinson’s disease;

  • Alzheimer’s disease;

  • osteoporosis;

  • gout;

  • arthritis/pain;

  • gastrointestinal issues;

  • asthma and allergies;

  • men’s health; and

  • women’s health.

A full list of medication brands can be found on Publix's pharmacy website.
