The savings are part of Sam’s Club’s Extra Value Drug List (EVDL), which allows Plus and Business Plus members to purchase certain generics for $4 or $10 at specific quantities. In addition, Plus and Business Plus members can receive savings ranging from 10% to 30% on selected branded drugs.
The five free medications are indicated for treatment of Alz-heimer’s, diabetes and other men’s and women’s health states or diseases. They include donepezil, vitamin D (50,000 IU), pioglitazone, finasteride and escitalopram. Additionally, more than 200 generics are available for $4, and more than 400 for $10, both at specified quantities. That pricing is available to eligible Plus members who decide to use the Plus discount only.
“Sam’s Club is always looking for ways to help members improve the health of our communities and provide exceptional value to our members,” says Jill Turner-Mitchael, senior vice president of health and wellness at Sam’s Club. “That’s why we created an extensive list of prescriptions to offer at substantial savings to our Plus and Business Plus members, especially those who are under-insured or uninsured.”
Additional benefits are available to active Plus members, including savings of up to 40% on certain generics and up to 8% on some branded prescription drugs that are not part of the EVDL program, when paying without insurance.
