CVS Pharmacy is taking its prescription delivery service to the next level.
The company announced it is launching same-day delivery prescription, with the order delivered within hours. The new feature is in addition to the chain’s already existing one-to-two day prescription service available nationwide.
The new service, delivered by Shipt, is now available at 6,000 CVS Pharmacy locations across the country.
“One year ago CVS Pharmacy redefined convenience for customers by introducing prescription delivery nationwide in order to extend the connection that our trusted, local pharmacists provide to their customers at our nearly 10,000 locations around the country,” CVS Pharmacy president Kevin Hourican said. “Today we’ve taken another step forward by expanding same-day delivery nationwide and enhancing the experience with our On-Demand delivery service.”
Through CVS Pharmacy’s newest delivery offering, when a medication has been filled and is ready for pickup, patients can opt to have their medications delivered within hours. They select On-Demand prescription delivery service via the CVS Pharmacy app, through SMS text, or by calling their local CVS Pharmacy. The delivery service charge is $7.99 and the packages will be delivered by Shipt.
Along with eligible prescriptions, thousands of the most popular health and household items, including cold and flu remedies, allergy medications, pain relief, first aid, digestive health, vitamins, baby, personal and feminine care products, can be added to delivery orders.
Patients who don’t need their medications as quickly, or who are looking for a lower cost delivery option, can select the one-to-two delivery option, which has a delivery fee of $4.99.
