Amazon’s new drug prescription service is almost what the doctor ordered


Continuing its foray into the healthcare industry, Amazon is launching its own drug prescription service for Prime members called RxPass, which lets consumers purchase generic medication for $5 a month.

And that $5 goes a long way. Not only is it a flat fee but subscribers won’t be subject to hidden fees or random markups, plus delivery is free. You can purchase all the medication (opens in new tab) you need for $5, assuming it’s available through the program. At launch, you’ll have access to more than 50 different medications (opens in new tab) to treat over 80 common health conditions from diabetes to gout and even high blood pressure. Any extra prescriptions you need that isn’t available through RxPass must be purchased through Amazon Pharmacy for its normal price. Speaking of which, Amazon Pharmacy will also highlight which medicine can be purchased through the new service as a  new blue RxPass icon will appear in medicine descriptions.
