'Walmart+ Rx for less' joins a growing list of benefits
BENTONVILLE, Ark. – Walmart is adding savings on prescription drugs to the list of perks offered to its Walmart+ members.
The new members-only prescription savings program is called Walmart+ Rx for less, the retailer said Monday.
“With Walmart+ Rx for less, we’re providing incredible value to Walmart+ members on the prescriptions they rely on most,” said Dr. Cheryl Pegus, executive vice president, Health and Wellness, Walmart U.S. “When you consider the frequency with which many prescriptions are filled, the importance of medication adherence and the ease of multiple fulfilment options, we can make it easier for someone to manage their medical conditions. As a company, we’re on a journey to make healthcare more accessible and affordable with our pharmacists providing their clinical expertise to our customers.”
Walmart+ members can choose to use the prescription discount program instead of their insurance benefits by presenting their pharmacy savings card along with a valid prescription at any Walmart Pharmacy location. Walmart+ member discounts can also be applied to e-prescriptions provided from a prescriber and transferred to the Walmart Pharmacy. The prescription savings program is administered by MedImpact, a trusted pharmacy benefit management company and a leader in Rx discounts, and includes prescriptions such as Cephalexin, Metformin, Lisinopril and more.
“We’re designing Walmart+ to be the ultimate life hack for our customers. It’s been our commitment from the beginning to continue to grow the suite of benefits we offer Walmart+ members. We know we can use our size and scale to help simplify things for our customers in a way only we can,” added Janey Whiteside, executive vice president and chief customer officer, Walmart U.S.
The program delivers additional savings on the most commonly prescribed medications across a variety of health needs, including heart health, mental health, antibiotics, allergies and diabetes management. Any member with a paid Walmart+ membership* now has access to select medications at zero cost, and thousands of additional prescription medications at a discount of up to eighty-five percent.
Since 2006, Walmart Pharmacy patients have saved on prescriptions through the retailer’s industry-changing $4 generics program. Customers will continue to benefit from that program in all Walmart pharmacies. And for those looking to save even more on their medications, membership has its benefits.
Walmart+ Rx for less joins a growing list of benefits offered to Walmart+ members, including unlimited free delivery from stores, no shipping minimums for online orders, and fuel discounts. Walmart+ members can also use the Walmart app to scan their purchases as they shop and then use Walmart Pay to complete the purchase, for a fast and touch-free payment experience, the company said.
