CVS Pharmacy is offering free, prescription-only antibiotic tablets for patients of the nation’s largest drugstore chain.
The company, which has more than 2,000 pharmacies nationwide, is using the same pharmacy benefits program that Walmart has.
The program, which offers discounts on prescription drugs to Medicare beneficiaries, also applies to Walmarts and Target.
The CVS pharmacy, which is also the nation`s largest pharmacy chain, is the only one in the country that offers these discounts.
The pharmacies will not have to carry prescription drugs and only offer them for patients to order online.
If you order antibiotics online, the pharmacy can give you the tablets directly to you, a spokesperson said.
It will also mail them to you.
You can order any prescription antibiotic, including those that come from a private doctor, for a discounted price.
The discounts are available to the first 20 patients who order.
You don`t have to wait for a prescription, but you must sign for it.
If you order a tablet online, you can get it within a day.
You cannot order more than one tablet at a time.
The pharmacy will only send you the one tablet you need, the spokesperson said, adding that if you get a different prescription or order a different type of antibiotic, the tablet will have to be returned.
This is the first time Walmains has offered these discounts to Medicare patients.
Last year, Walmills first Medicare pharmacy, Target, said it would offer similar discounts to its patients.
But the pharmacy, with more than 300 pharmacies in all 50 states, said they would be limited to $25 per tablet, not including the $5 minimum fee for Medicare.
