Publix Pharmacy Launches Low-Price Prescription Drug Program

The Publix Pharmacy has introduced a new prescription drug program, “Next Best Thing to Free,” which offers up to a 90-day supply for $7.50. The company hopes the program will improve patients’ access to some of the most commonly prescribed medications.

Regardless of insurance coverage, Publix Pharmacy will dispense a select list of medications for the same out-of-pocket cost to help customers get the medications they need to maintain or improve their current diagnosis.  

“Our founder, George Jenkins, taught us to take care of people and our communities, and making needed medications more affordable provides us this opportunity,” said Maria Brous, director of media and community relations. “Healthcare costs continue to rise, so sometimes people have a hard time filling their prescriptions as regularly as they should. We believe this low price will help encourage customers to follow their doctor’s orders, so they can experience better health outcomes.”

Publix Pharmacy believes that by providing price transparency on medications, patients can anticipate their out-of-pocket costs, making them more inclined to stay compliant with their medications, the company adds. 

The prescription medications that are included in this program are:

  • Heart health/cardiovascular: clonidine 0.1 mg, 0.2 mg, or 0.3 mg tablet; clopidogrel 75 mg tablet; furosemide 20 mg, 40 mg, or 80 mg tablet; hydralazine 10 mg, 25 mg, 50 mg, or 100 mg tablet; hydrochlorothiazide 12.5 mg capsule; hydrochlorothiazide 25 mg or 50 mg tablet; losartan 25 mg, 50 mg, or 100 mg tablet; metoprolol tartrate 25 mg, 50 mg, or 100 mg tablet; spironolactone 25 mg or 50 mg tablet; triamterene-HCTZ 37.5–25 mg capsule; triamterene-HCTZ 37.5–25 mg, or 75–50 mg tablet; warfarin 1 mg, 2 mg, 2.5 mg, 4 mg, 5 mg, 6 mg, 7.5 mg, or 10 mg tablet
