Walmart Prescriptions

Updated on June 3, 2010

The high cost of health care or lack of it, is a great concern for many Americans. To the uninsured or underinsured, it has prevented them from getting the medications they need at the price they can afford.

As part of its commitment to provide access to affordable prescription drugs, Walmart initiated a unique generic prescriptions program where anyone can have access to over 300 generic varieties of drugs at the very affordable cost of $4 per 30 day supply.

Originally launched in Tampa, Florida in September 2006, Walmart $4 prescriptions program quickly expanded to 49 states and today Walmart prescriptions are available at more than 4,000 Walmart, Sam's Club and Neighborhood Market pharmacies across the country.

For families struggling with the rising cost of health care, Walmart prescriptions are seen as a much needed relief for many in today's tough economic times.

Built upon its success of $4 prescriptions program which to date has saved its customers more than $2 billion dollars on their prescriptions, Walmart is now filling prescriptions for up to 350 generic drugs for $10 for a three-month supply.

In addition, it has lowered the prices of more than 1,000 over-the-counter medications to $4 or less in most of its pharmacies such as the Equate brand of popular drugs like Zantac, Pepcid and Claritin.

In the past, Paxil, being one of Walmart's top selling generic drugs, cost $50 to fill. But now like several other prescriptions, it's going for a flat $4 which translates into a huge saving.

Its list of discounted prescriptions also includes several women's medications available for $9, including drugs to treat breast cancer, oral contraceptives and hormone deficiency.

For instance, Tamoxifen, used to treat breast cancer, will be offered for $9 for a 30-day supply, as well as combination estrogen/methyltestosterone tablets, prescribed for menopause and hormone deficiency.

So if you have been struggling with the cost of prescription drugs, you might want to consider Walmart $4 program as an option for your prescriptions.

As long as you have proper prescription by your doctor, you can choose to either self-collect from the nearest Walmart pharmacy or have them delivered to your home.

It’s easy, fast and super convenient. You don't even need to sign up for pharmacy discount card.

Now being sick doesn’t have to be costly anymore.
