Medication Delivery as low as $1/month with Amazon Prime

Amazon has announced that their Amazon Prime members are eligible for medication delivery for as little as $1/month. They report working with most insurance programs including medicaid. The program works by first checking whether the Amazon Pharmacy can supply your specific medication needs. They have an online portal to investigate whether your medications are carried.

You can submit a prescription as part of signing up for the Amazon Pharmacy service. Alternatively you can contact your prescriber directly and designate “Amazon Pharmacy Home Delivery” as your pharmacy. If doing the later, you will need to provide the following information to your prescriber:

Pharmacy Name: Amazon Pharmacy Home Delivery

Pharmacy Fax: 512-884-5981

Pharmacy Address: 4500 S Pleasant Valley Road, Suite 201 Austin, TX 78744-2911

Pharmacy Phone Number: 855-206-3605

Please Note: Prescriptions for controlled substances can only be accepted directly from your prescriber via E-Scribe. Your prescriber should be familiar with e-scribe.

Amazon Prime members receive a number of other benefits that may make signing up for Prime Membership beneficial for low income individuals and households. Such benefits include FREE delivery of groceries purchased on amazon.com using SNAP EBT, including fresh fruits and vegetables. Investment in membership by low income individuals and families can be further swayed by special discount pricing for Prime Membership. Qualifying EBT and government assistance recipients can save 50% on Prime membership, paying $6.99/month, instead of the regular $14.99/month.

 

You can verify your eligibility by providing one of the following:
