How much is amoxicillin at Publix?
According to reports from the Associated Press and the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, on Monday, Florida-based Publix Super Markets started providing free 14-day supply of seven common, generic antibiotics to consumers who had a valid prescription for the medication.
- The amount of prescriptions that a consumer can have filled is not going to be restricted in any way.
- According to AP/South Florida Sun-report Sentinel’s on August 6th, the grocery store chain would make the medicines available for free at all 684 of its locations in the states of Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama, and Tennessee.
This decision was made by Publix after Wal-Mart Stores in the previous year introduced a program that sells 30-day supply of 291 generic medications for $4. Target also has a program that is quite similar to Wal- Mart’s. In October of 2006, the grocery store chain Meijer, situated in Michigan, started giving out eight different types of generic antibiotics.
Amoxicillin, cephalexin, sulfamethoxazole/trimethoprim, penicillin VK, ciprofloxacin, ampicillin, and erythromycin are the antibiotics that are sold at Publix. The prices for these antibiotics range anywhere from ten dollars to sixty dollars on average. According to Bora of the St. Petersburg Times on August 7th, the business has chosen not to reveal how much the program will cost.
Publix has stated that it will not bill customers’ health insurance, including Medicare, for the cost of the medications it sells to consumers who already have health coverage. According to Dorschner of the Miami Herald on August 6th, the business believes that antibiotics are responsible for roughly half of all generic and pediatric prescriptions that are completed at Publix pharmacies.
“Frankly, we’re interested in developing our pharmacy business,” Publix CEO Charlie Jenkins said, adding, “But more importantly, we want to assist the inhabitants of our state have inexpensive health care, and we thought this was just a wonderful start in accomplishing that.” According to Andrew Agwunobi, who is the secretary of Florida’s Agency for Health Care Administration, the state has 3.6 million individuals who do not have health insurance, and many of the citizens who do have insurance do not have prescription medication coverage.
Agwunobi forecasted that there would be a significant amount of interest in the program and said, “So I hope (Publix outlets) are ready” (AP/South Florida Sun-Sentinel, 8/6). This is a portion of the KHN Morning Briefing, which provides an overview of the coverage of health policy stories from major news organizations.
