Amazon Opens its Own Online Pharmacy | Here is What You Need to Know

Recently, Amazon announced that it would be opening its very own online pharmacy, called Amazon Pharmacy. The news sent the stock of other big-name pharmacies, such as CVS, plummeting, and rightfully so–Amazon has made a habit of shaking up every industry it touches.

The overarching goal of Amazon Pharmacy is to provide Amazon shoppers with the ability to send their prescriptions to Amazon Pharmacy, allowing them to complete an entire pharmacy transaction on their desktop or cell phone through the mobile app. Amazon offers free two-day delivery for members through Amazon Pharmacy. Once you have an account, you will be able to add your insurance information, manage your prescriptions, and pay for your medication before checking out. Your medication will be sent in discreet packaging and should arrive at your two within two days. Additionally, Amazon Prime members who are paying without insurance can receive up to 80% off generic medications, as well as 40% off brand name medications.

The Vice President of Amazon Pharmacy, TJ Parker, said in a statement, “We designed Amazon Pharmacy to put customers first – bringing Amazon’s customer obsession to an industry that can be inconvenient and confusing. We work hard behind the scenes to handle complications seamlessly so anyone who needs a prescription can understand their options, place their order for the lowest available price, and have their medication delivered quickly.”

In addition, the Vice President of Amazon Prime said, “We understand the importance of access to affordable medication, and we believe Prime members will find tremendous value with the new Amazon Prime prescription savings benefit. Our goal is for Prime to make members’ lives easier and more convenient every day, and we’re excited to extend the incredible savings, seamless shopping experience, and fast, free delivery members know and love with Prime to Amazon Pharmacy.”
