Amazon has announced a new subscription service, so far restricted to users in the US, that will allow you to purchase medications for a monthly fee of US$5 (about R$25). RxPass is a partnership with the e-commerce giant’s pharmacy sector.

It launched in 2020 as a two-day prescription drug delivery offer for Prime users. The new subscription would then be an add-on to Prime, which currently costs $139 a year or $15 a month.

There are more than 80 common health problems that the subscription covers, such as high blood pressure, reflux, anemia and even more complex ones such as depression, diabetes, breast cancer and dementia. There are 60 generic drugs and subscribers can choose between receiving them monthly or quarterly.

You’ll have to pay the $5 to get the subscription, as the service doesn’t accept insurance or health plans like Amazon Pharmacy. People enrolled in Medicare, Medicaid and any other government health program will also not be able to enroll in RxPass, but will continue to use the benefit for other pharmacy items purchased separately.

This subscription is well worth it for people who tend to spend more than $5 a month and who see their medications listed in the RxPass options. You can check them out on this list or in the pharmacy section of Amazon.

If this novelty arrived in Europe, would you be interested in purchasing it? Leave your comment below!
