Amazon Prime is rolling out RxPass, a pre-paid prescription plan for monthly medications.

The generic prescription plan sees Amazon push further into the healthcare arena having launched Amazon Pharmacy in November 2020. Amazon Pharmacy was initially only available to American Prime customers but has since rolled out to other countries.

So, if you’re looking to get involved with the accessible RxPass, you might be curious to know whether your regular medications are available through this new Amazon Prime perk. Let’s take a look.

How to get your medications through RxPass

There will be a range of more than 50 generic medications available for inclusion on an RxPass subscription. These treat common conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and anxiety. Some supplements will also be available to add to RxPass.

Adding an RxPass to your Amazon Prime is as simple as adding video subscriptions such as HBO Max to your Prime Video account.

Subscribers can get their prescribed medications that are covered on the list as often as required for one flat monthly fee. Auto-refill on your eligible prescriptions means Prime can help you stay on top of your medication.

You can find out how to add an RxPass to your account through the Amazon Prime website. It is currently only available for customers in the US.
