    Publix Launches Low-Cost Generics Program

    Publix Pharmacy’s new low-cost generic program will provide up to a 90-day supply of some of the most commonly prescribed generic drugs for $7.50.

    The Lakeland, FL-based chain of 1,168 stores will offer 29 generic medications with a total of 85 dosage options for $7.50 each. They include highly-prescribed treatments for heart health and cardiovascular conditions, diabetes, high cholesterol, mental health, seizure disorders, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, osteoporosis, and several other medical conditions.

     “Healthcare costs continue to rise, so sometimes people have a hard time filling their prescriptions as regularly as they should. We believe this low price will help encourage customers to follow their doctor’s orders, so they can experience better health outcomes,” said Maria Brous, director of media and community relations for Publix.
