Today, all major retail drugstores and many other pharmacies offer same-day prescription delivery.
After signing up for a delivery service, the customer can choose to deliver a particular drug to the door. Delivery became popular during the pandemic stay-at-home order, but these services have taken hold as people are looking for ways to make their daily lives easier.
Here are some examples of available options:
- Uber Eats works with Nimble RX to deliver prescriptions free of charge from local pharmacies. Customers use the Uber Eats app to connect to Nimble.
- Patients with Walgreens can deliver their medication from almost anywhere in the United States within hours of ordering.
- Same-day delivery by Shipt is available at CVS pharmacies in most states, including Texas, for a fee of $ 7.99. Join the $ 5 / month CVS CarePass program to deliver your medicine for free on the same day.
- Costco members can schedule prescription deliveries up to one week in advance. Alternatively, spend $ 35 on same-day grocery delivery and you’ll be exempt from the $ 7.99 prescription delivery fee.
Almost all of these services involve interaction with the app, so customers need a little knowledge or help to get their account up and running. Also, not all prescriptions are eligible for delivery.
“People are putting more on their dishes than ever before,” said Tony Makarich of the Catalyst Health Network. “And if we could deliver those medicines directly to their doors, it would save us a lot of time.”
