When you see that Amazon delivery van rounding the corner and stopping in front of your home, it’s reassuring to know that whatever you ordered online this week is moments from arriving on your doorstep.
Fast and free home delivery of everything from household goods to holiday gifts has been an enormous convenience for all consumers and was an absolute necessity for many of us during the most confining times of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Getting free delivery of the medications you take to be – and stay – healthy, should be just as easy, and now it will be. Amazon Pharmacy is now available to you through Horizon’s new online home delivery program.
“Ordering 90-day supplies of medications is a great way for Horizon members to reduce what they pay out of pocket for prescription drugs, but it hasn’t always been easy,” said Saira A. Jan, M.S., Pharm.D., Vice-President & Chief Pharmacy Officer for Horizon. “ Amazon Pharmacy brings the familiarity and ease of the online Amazon shopping experience to mail-order prescriptions. Horizon members can now order and refill their medicines quickly, securely and often at a discounted price. We’re continually looking for innovative ways to improve convenience and lower costs for prescription drug benefits, and integrating Horizon mail order with Amazon Pharmacy is another important tool.”
Setting up an Amazon Pharmacy account is also easy – visit amazon.com/horizonblue and click Get Started. It takes about 5 minutes. (If you don’t have an Amazon account, you will need to sign up for one first).
With Amazon Pharmacy, Horizon members can expect:
- A convenient and familiar Amazon shopping experience
- Free shipping (2-day for Amazon Prime members; 5-day for non-Amazon Prime)
- 24/7/365 access to a pharmacist
- Clear pricing to help save time and money
- The ability to manage your medicine and order history online
Amazon Pharmacy is fully accredited and can fill most brand name and generic medicines1, while also taking a two-step approach to help save you money. In addition to Amazon Pharmacy, covered commercial members also get a built-in drug discount card called MedsYourWay™2, which can add additional drug price transparency and savings during the ordering process.
MedsYourWay combines drug discount card pricing with your pharmacy benefit, giving you the lowest price possible for your covered prescriptions or OTC medications at the point of sale whether that be through applying your copay amount or the discount card price. And you have that flexibility without the need to carry a separate drug discount card.
The MedsYourWay discount pricing offers many benefits, including:
- Seamlessly integrated into your shopping experience at Amazon Pharmacy
- You can save nearly 40% on select brand medications; and 80% on generics3
- Purchases automatically count toward your deductible or out-of-pocket maximum when selecting covered and eligible medicines through Amazon Pharmacy4
Prescription drugs are the fasting-growing expense in health care, accounting for nearly 20 cents of every dollar that Horizon members pay in premiums. Amazon Pharmacy builds on the tools Horizon members already have to save money, like 90-day medication ordering and delivery through AllianceRx Walgreens Prime and the added convenience of PillPack by Amazon Pharmacy, which offers presorted maintenance medications with no extra shipping cost.
