UnitedHealthcare's Pharmacy Saver program expands

MINNETONKA, Minn. — More retailers have signed on for UnitedHealthcare's prescription savings program that caters to Medicare Part D members.

Target, H-E-B, Hy-Vee, Publix Super Markets, Food Lion, Bloom, Harveys and Sweetbay Supermarket have joined the insurance company's Pharmacy Saver program, which allows members to purchase some scripts for $2 for 30-day and some 90-day supplies, and applies to hundreds of prescription drugs, including 8-of-the-10 most commonly used by UnitedHealthcare Medicare plan members.

The announcement comes nearly one month after Kroger and Safeway signed on to participate.

"The rapid growth of Pharmacy Saver is a direct reflection of our commitment to finding new ways to bring important cost-savings benefits to our members," said Tom Paul, CEO of UnitedHealthcare Medicare and retirement. "We're pleased the addition of these new retailers will give even more members the opportunity to save money on their prescriptions next year."
