Wal-Mart to Sell Generic Drugs for $4 Prescription

Posted By on Fri, Sep 22, 2006 at 8:17 AM

As someone who intensely dislikes Wal-Mart, I'm kind of curious to see how this new policy will go down. My health insurance has no pharmaceutical drug coverage to speak of. If Wal-Mart can buy in volume, maybe they can afford to sell generic drugs for $4 for a 31-day prescription—which just goes to show you what the mark up price is everywhere else.

Don't get me started. I think our health care is in this mess because the pharmaceutical companies and the FDA are in bed together. He who has the biggest army of lobbyists wins.
