Wal-Mart Rolls Out Free Delivery, Low Cost Drugs in Michigan

Wal-Mart Stores rolled out a statewide pilot program in Michigan yesterday offering a 90-day supply of 300 generic prescriptions, each for $10 via free mail delivery.

BENTONVILLE, Ark. — Wal-Mart Stores rolled out a statewide pilot program in Michigan yesterday offering a 90-day supply of 300 generic prescriptions, each for $10 via free mail delivery. The program builds upon Wal-Mart’s $4 per month generic drug program, introduced in 2006.

That event “truly changed the pharmacy landscape,” noted Dr. John Agwunobi, Wal-Mart’s president of the health and wellness division, in a press statement. The free delivery component gives Michigan consumers added convenience to fill prescriptions if they do not have close access to a Wal-Mart pharmacy.

In addition to the 300 generic prescriptions for $10 each, Walmart’s free mail delivery program provides access to more than 3,000 other affordable brand and generic prescriptions by calling 1-800-2REFILL.
