Publix Super Markets once offered a variety of medications free of charge.
Unfortunately, this popular prescriptions program is coming to an end.
The Lakeland-based chain recently announced the program is scheduled to end on Wednesday, June 1, 2022.
According to some Publix employees, “citing internal company emails, medications that were free through Publix Pharmacy – such as amoxicillin, lisinopril, metformin, amlodipine and others – could now possibly cost $7.50 for a 90-day or 14-day supply where appropriate,” the news report said.
Since starting the program in 2007, Publix has offered free Amlodipine, Amoxicillin, Lisinopril and Metformin, among other medications. Available medications treated conditions such as:
- Heart Health/Cardiovascular
- Mental Health
- Seizure Disorders
- Parkinson’s Disease
- Alzheimer’s Disease
- Asthma & Allergies
- Men’s Health
- Women’s Health
More recently, Publix Pharmacy has also been offering free COVID-19 vaccine and boosters. For more on the vaccines, click here.
