Humana and Walmart teamed up back in 2010 to offer one of the most price competitive drug plans in the history of the Part-D drug program, and they have been going strong ever since.
One of the reasons why their partnership is so successful is using a Walmart or Sam’s Club pharmacy to fill your prescriptions will get you the lowest cost possible for your prescription drugs versus going to any other pharmacy.
Another reason for the success of the program is the four dollar generic prescription drug program that they have been pioneering for the last several years.
Last but certainly not least, the cost of the drug plan is so low that pretty much any senior looking for a drug card can afford it, especially if they are only taking generic or low-cost brand drugs. For 2015, the premium for the Humana Walmart RX plan is only $15.60 per month, with a co-pay as low as one dollar after the deductible is met if you fill your prescription at Walmart-branded pharmacies.
What’s amazing is that some drugs can come at absolutely no cost to the consumer if they use mail order, after the deductible is met. The plan covers over 1,500 generic prescription drugs, which happens to be quite more than some of their competitors.
The deductible this year for this drug card is $320, and this is for all tiers of drugs. It includes your tier 1 cheap generic medications as well.
