Amazon is launching a new prescription service that lets patients on Amazon Prime get eligible generic medications for a $5 monthly subscription, including free delivery.

The program, called RxPass, is the latest addition to Amazon’s growing line of direct-to-consumer health care businesses. In November, the company announced the launch of Amazon Clinic, a telehealth service that lets patients message with a third-party provider to get prescriptions for common conditions. Those prescriptions, like the medications offered on RxPass, can be filled through Amazon Pharmacy.


RxPass will include 50 drugs that are used to treat more than 80 conditions such ashigh blood pressure, anxiety and acid reflux, the company said. The business doesn’t accept insurance, so there won’t be deductibles or copays outside of that $5 a month fee.
