Discounted Prescription Programs

Discounted Prescription Programs from Walmart, Target, Kroger, Meijer, KmartTo help individuals and families struggling with the rising costs of health care, many large pharmacies are offering reduced rates on generic prescription drugs. Here are a few I've found:

Walmart/Sam's Club/ Neighborhood Market Pharmacies:
The program is called the $4 Prescription Program. They offer to fill prescriptions for up to 350 generic medications at $4 for a 30 day supply or $10 for a 90-day supply. They also offer customers more than 1,000 OTC items priced at $4 or less without a prescription. Restrictions apply and the program is subject to change, so be sure to either visit Walmart online: Walmart Pharmacy or talk with your local Wal-Mart, Neighborhood Market or Sam’s Club pharmacist for more details.

Meijer Pharmacies:
They offer a few specific generic medications for free, regardless of insurance or co-pay. There is a 14 day supply maximum at normal oral dosages. They also recently launched a free pre-natal vitamin program, which features five leading brands of pre-natal vitamins. Restrictions apply and the program is subject to change, so be sure to see Meijer online: Meijer Pharmacy or talk with your local Meijer pharmacist for details.

Target Pharmacies:
They offer a $4 program for a large selection of generic medication. The $4 is for a 30-day supply. They also offer 90 day supply for $10. Restrictions apply and the program is subject to change, so be sure to visit Target website: Target Pharmacy or speak to your Target pharmacist for more details.

Kroger Pharmacies:
They offer a 30-day supply of more than 300 prescriptions for only $4, or get a 90-day supply for only $10. Restrictions apply and the program is subject to change, so be sure to visit Kroger online: Kroger Pharmacy or speak to your Kroger pharmacist for more details.

Kmart Pharmacies:
They offer the 90 day generic prescription program. When you join, you are eligible to receive $5 prescriptions for some select medications (quantities vary, based on commonly prescribed doses). A 3 month supply of some select medication can be obtained for $10 or $15. They also offer a discount on women's health prescriptions, keeping the prices between $5-$25. Restrictions apply and the program is subject to change. To get more details, see Kmart online: Kmart Pharmacy or speak to your local Kmart pharmacist for more details.


If you are interested in any in these programs, be sure to discuss with them with your physican.
