Generic Medications

To save you money, we’ll substitute a less expensive, FDA-approved generic medication when possible. We make this substitution only if the medication is safely interchangeable with, and a therapeutic equal to the brand-name medication prescribed by your provider. Our pharmacies offer generic medications for as low as $5 a month.

If you object to a substitution, tell us when you order your medication or before you leave the pharmacy.
