Kmart Pharmacy today announced an expansion of its 90-Day Generic Drug Program to include more than 300 medications. The program, which began in May 2006 in all of the more than 1,100 Kmart pharmacies nationwide, offers customers a 90-day supply of covered medications for just $15.
Now covered by the 90-Day Generics Program are nearly 70 new generic medications, including 17 different formulations of popular generic prescription prenatal vitamins, a larger selection than other generic programs.
The Kmart 90-Day Generics Program offers several medications not currently offered on many other generic programs, including sertraline (used to treat depression) and simvastatin (used to treat high cholesterol), which were the fifth and tenth most prescribed brand medications in 2005 before both became available as generics in 2006.
"At Kmart Pharmacy we strive to provide healthcare solutions that improve our customers' quality of life at an exceptional value," said Mark Doerr, RPh, vice president of Kmart Pharmacy. "Our exclusive 90-Day Generics program, which offers a lower out-of-pocket cost than most mail-order prescription coverage, also encourages better patient care through personal pharmacist interaction."
