Not all prescriptions are covered under that plan.Here’s the link to walmarts $4 Prescriptions so you can check to see if that particular one is covered:https://www.walmart.com/catalog/catalog.gsp?cat=546834&fromPageCatId=5431from their site:
- you are eligible for this program whether or not you have any prescription-drug coverage through your company, under medicare or any other plan.
- we have recently added 24 new $4 prescriptions.
- Our new Women’s Health category features several $9 prescriptions – a significant savings over typical prices.**
- Over the last year since the introduction of this program, 16 states have seen customer savings of $15 million or more.
A Note- make sure you know exactly what the prescription is for- an example, a couple weeks ago I had to take ds to the er – he played next door and got a severe case of poison ivy- then played baseball, got hit in the eye, rubbed his eye and managed to spread the poison ivy all over his face and in his eyes- which swelled shut within hours.
the doc gave him a prescription for tablets- they (the walmart pharmacy) decided to fill it in liquid form- which was not covered by the $4 plan- so instead of $4 they were going to charge me $165.
I made them call the doc at the ER to confirm it was supposed to be tablets rather than Liquid- and then the prescription dropped to $4.
So watch the writing on the prescription- although the medicine may be available in different forms- liquid, tablets, capsules, ointments, creams, etc- not all forms of each drug is covered.
I just had a flyer here theother day for a company -Meihers & Publix,that offers all antibiotic prescriptions forFREE at their store.
