Walmart takes generics prescription mail program national

9/15/2009

BENTONVILLE, Ark. Walmart announced Tuesday that it would expand its prescription mail delivery program nationwide, allowing patients with valid prescriptions to order 90-day supplies of 300 different generic drugs for $10 and receive them in the mail for free. The retailer also offers free mail delivery for more than 3,000 other generic and brand drugs.

“Walmart’s $4 generic drug program has helped so many patients afford their medication needs, but unfortunately, we’ve found there are still too many patients unable to take advantage of our low prices because they are homebound or live too far from a Walmart or Sam’s Club pharmacy,” Walmart health and wellness division president John Agwunobi said in a statement. “With this program, we’re able to provide consumers in every rural town or big city across America with more affordable prescription medicines through a convenient, free mail delivery system.”

Walmart began offering the $10 mail-order option in Michigan in May, and expanded the pricing program to 22 additional states in the Northeast and Midwest in August.
