Last week, Amazon launched its own online pharmacy – Amazon Pharmacy – to provide door-to-door delivery of prescription medications and refills in select areas. Prime members receive unlimited, free two-day delivery of prescriptions in discreet packaging.
After setting up a secure patient profile through the Amazon App, customers can add insurance information, manage prescriptions and payment options. Through the Amazon Pharmacy program, members can price prescriptions (generic and brand name) with and without insurance and with their co-pay to determine the most affordable option.
In addition, Amazon announced that customers paying for prescriptions without insurance can save up to 80% off generic and 40% off brand name medications at Amazon Pharmacy and at more than 50,000 other participating pharmacies across the country.
The Prime prescription savings benefit, available through Inside Rx, LLC, cannot be combined with other offers and is not considered insurance. Prime members and one other adult member of their household can access the prescription savings benefit. Limitations may apply for patients covered under Medicare, Medicaid or Tricare.
