Sam’s Club has expanded its prescription savings program, making some generic medication available free of charge or at a discounted price to members, according to a company press release.
“Sam’s Club is always looking for ways to help improve the health of our communities and provide exceptional value to our members,” said Jill Turner-Mitchael, senior vice president, Sam’s Club Health and Wellness.
“It’s part of our ongoing commitment to making health care more accessible and affordable.”
For Sam’s Club Plus members, five generic prescriptions at specific quantities are available for free in 35 states — these medications treat Alzheimer disease, diabetes, and other conditions. Additionally, more than 200 generic medications are available for $4 and more than 400 generic prescriptions are available for $10 in any Sam’s Club location with a pharmacy. The new benefit is a component of the company’s Extra Value Drug List (EVDL).
“Many other health and wellness benefits are available to Plus members,” noted the company. Patients enrolled in the Sam’s Club Plus program also receive up to a 40% discount on certain generic drugs and up to 8% on name brand prescriptions when paying without insurance.
