It seems like there are almost limitless Prime membership benefits. If you haven’t heard, Amazon gives Prime members an option to enroll in Amazon RxPass, a $5 monthly service that provides generic prescriptions for common ailments. You don’t even need insurance to get crazy discounts. When you consider how outrageously expensive medication is these days, it’s no exaggeration to say that RxPass could save you thousands of dollars each year.

Members get as many prescriptions as needed, and the medicines are delivered to their doorstep, free of charge. This is a great option for those of you paying any more than $5 out of pocket for prescriptions each month. It’s also got the added convenience of using Amazon Pharmacy online without having to visit a brick-and-mortar location.

Amazon RxPass costs just $5/month for Prime members.

How much is RxPass? For current Amazon Prime subscribers, RxPass costs $5 per month. Depending on your medication, this saves you up to 68% on generic prescriptions when compared to local pharmacies. Plus, there’s no waiting in line to drop off or pick up prescriptions.

This is a flat $5 fee per month regardless of the number of medications you use. You won’t be charged per medication, and delivery to your home is free. You can cancel at any time, but if you subscribed to a 90-day supply of a medication, your cancelation wouldn’t go into effect until the end of those 90 days.

Over 50 generic medications are available.

Members enrolled in RxPass have access to over 50 generic medications that are used to treat more than 80 common health conditions such as high blood pressure, anxiety, and diabetes. To find out if your current medication is included, you can do a quick search on the Amazon Pharmacy website, or you can see all of the medications and their dosage (or search by health condition) by reviewing the full list.

Amazon Pharmacy isn’t the same thing as RxPass — there’s an important difference.

This isn’t the first time Amazon has dabbled in healthcare. They just launched Amazon Clinics in 2022. Even before then, In 2020 we saw the launch of Amazon Pharmacy, an online pharmacy that works with your insurance and healthcare providers to get prescriptions delivered to you without a pharmacy visit. Basically, Amazon Pharmacy is well … an online pharmacy. It works in a similar way to CVS or Walgreens where they accept insurance as well as HSA and FSA, but you do everything online and prescriptions are mailed to your home. You still pay per prescription and have access to name-brand and generic medicines.

But even if you don’t have insurance, you can get really good prices on prescriptions. For example, without insurance, Sertraline sells for about $70 for a 30-day supply. But you can get it for just $8.80 without insurance at Amazon Pharmacy.

Amazon RxPass differs from Amazon Pharmacy in that you pay a flat monthly fee of $5 and get as many generic medications as you need. They don’t work with insurance but they do accept HSA or FSA payments. This is an easy way to get access to affordable, generic drugs without any added insurance paperwork or stress.

Make sure your existing prescriptions work with RxPass.

Before jumping on Amazon RxPass, it’s important to take stock of your medications to ensure this is right for you. The $5 monthly fee might sound incredible, but you’ll want to consider these things.

  • First, are your current prescriptions offered in the Amazon RxPass plan?

  • Second, do you currently pay more than $5 out of pocket per month for them at your local pharmacy?

  • Lastly, do you live in an eligible state? It’s not available in California, Minnesota, New Hampshire, Texas, and Washington State. But Prime members living in those states can still use Amazon Pharmacy.

If you answered yes to both of these questions, the RxPass is definitely something you should look into further. It’s also worth noting that RxPass doesn’t use insurance, and those with government-funded Medicaid or Medicare coverage are not eligible to enroll in the program.

Here’s how to use Amazon RxPass:

  2. You’ll be directed to answer a few questions through Amazon Pharmacy. This is to ensure you’re not using government-funded medical coverage.

  3. Once enrolled, search for medications, and if yours is included in RxPass, opt to have your prescriptions transferred to Amazon Pharmacy.

  4. Select the frequency for your deliveries and you’re all set!

Depending on your prescription, you can have your medications delivered to you on a monthly or quarterly basis.
