Finally, the one type of retailer that consumers really need deliveries from has stepped up to the plate to provide the service: CVS Pharmacy, the retail division of CVS Health announced on April 4 that it is now offering same-day prescription delivery within hours; in addition to its 1-2 day prescription delivery service available nationwide.
“A 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,” said Kevin Hourican, president of CVS Pharmacy. “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, the majority of CVS Pharmacy stores across the country are able to offer same-day delivery of eligible prescriptions. When a medication has been filled and is ready for pickup, patients can opt to have their medications delivered within hours. They simply have to 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 carried by CVS Pharmacy, 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. Controlled substances and medications that require refrigeration cannot be delivered to most locations at this time.
