In November 2020 Amazon launched Amazon Pharmacy to reduce obstacles for obtaining medications. This is a full service pharmacy with a wide variety of medications at affordable prices.
Earlier this year, Amazon announced their new Rx subscription service called RxPass.
For only $5 a month, users have access to generic medications to treat over 80 common health conditions including but not limited to: high blood pressure, allergies, high cholesterol, anxiety and acid reflux. The $5 a month covers the cost of delivery for one or multiple medications a month.
While the Amazon Pharmacy is available to everyone, RxPass is only available to those that have a Prime membership and are not enrolled in a federal or state government sponsored health program like Medicaid, Medicare or Marketplace insurance (ObamaCare)*. Those individuals can still fill prescriptions through the Amazon Pharmacy, but unfortunately are not eligible for the subscription service.
Users can use their FSA & HSA dollars to purchase medications through the Amazon Pharmacy, but they cannot use an HSA or FSA to pay for the subscription fee. RxPass is not insurance nor is it a substitute for insurance.
