$ generic Drug Program at Wal-mart

Great news for individuals struggling with prescription drug prices with or without prescription drug insurance. Wal-Mart has recently announced that they are now offering over 300 different generics available for $4 per prescription. Only prescriptions filled in person are eligible for the $4 program.

The program offers up to a 30 day supply of generic drugs on the current list of covered drugs at commonly prescribed dosages. Consumers can get this prescription drug savings whether or not they have any prescription drug coverage through their employer, under Medicare or any other plan.

Some insurance plans, including some of the Medicare D providers, may entitle the consumer to pay even less than $4 for their prescription. The Wal-Mart web site says they will charge the lowest applicable amount. The list of covered generic drugs is subject to change, and not all generic prescription drugs are covered by the program. The list of generics currently available can be found here, or on the “Wal-mart” link located on the Resource Links tab, in the section “Medication Issues”.

This price does not apply to prescriptions filled by mail order. Prescriptions refilled may be ordered online or by telephone, but must be picked up in person. This program is also being offered at Sam’s Club and Neighborhood Market pharmacies.
