Does paying $2 for your prescription drugs sound good to you? It certainly does to us, and UnitedHealth has taken a step to making it a reality for some senior citizens. UnitedHealth has announced that is launching a program to allow participants in its Medicare prescription-drug plans to buy generic prescription drugs for as low as $2 at Safeway and Kroger pharmacies or through its own mail-order pharmacy.
It’s great news during Medicare Open Enrollment season, especially if you are looking for Medicare plans with affordable options for your prescription drug needs. UnitedHealth’s Pharmacy Saver program will offer participants $2 out-of-pocket costs for 30-day supplies of 317 generic drugs at Kroger stores and 80 generics at Safeway pharmacies, among other options. In addition, 90-day supplies of seven drugs will be available for $2 from UnitedHealth’s Prescription Solutions mail pharmacy and 28 drugs from the mail service will be available for $4 for a three-month supply.
In addition, members enrolled in UnitedHealthcare’s Medicare plans, including its AARP® MedicareRx prescription drug plans and its AARP® MedicareComplete Medicare Advantage-Prescription Drug plans, will see their typical out-of-pocket cost for a 30-day supply of select medications decrease to as low as $2 when they purchase their prescriptions from pharmacies participating in the program.
