There are very few industries that are not constantly trying to make it easier for consumers to buy and receive their products. The internet and faster shipping methods have made it far simpler and far less expensive for businesses to speed up shipping and make sure that people receive their products quickly, sometimes even on the same day. CVS just announced it would be offering a speedier delivery for those who use the pharmacy to fill their prescriptions. This could have major benefits for those who may need their prescriptions quickly and who cannot go out to pick them up.
CVS has offered nationwide, one-day and two-day delivery options for prescription drugs for about a year now. But in April the company announced it would be starting a prescription delivery service that would get your medications to you within hours of the pharmacist filling the prescription. Delivered by Shipt, 6000 CVS locations across the country are making it possible for you to opt for same day delivery when CVS notifies you that the prescription has been filled.
Prescription users can opt for same day delivery by using the CVS Pharmacy app, text message, or over the phone. The convenience this offers does come at a cost, though. The same day delivery service will charge $7.99 for delivery of eligible prescriptions. But if you’re not willing to pay the fee, you can still get your prescriptions delivered at a lower cost by opting for a slower delivery option. Most CVS products can be shipped along with eligible prescriptions, including OTC medications for allergies, cold and flu, and pain relief.
This change in CVS’ delivery policy will benefit a lot of people who may not be able to leave their homes, or who are in need of medications quickly. But all Americans can benefit from lower prices at the pharmacy, whether their medications are being shipped to them or if they’re going to pick them up themselves. RxLess can help you get your prescriptions at a lower price every time you go to the pharmacy.
