The Humana Walmart-Preferred Rx Plan may reduce the cost of prescription medications for those eligible for Medicare Part D.[1] As a stand-alone prescription drug plan (PDP), it provides additional prescription drug coverage for the standard Medicare benefit plan. Patients save by using the plan's preferred pharmacies, including those at Walmart, Sam's Club, Walmart Neighborhood Market, and Walmart Express. Patients may also order prescriptions for mail delivery through Humana’s RightSource Rx. Co-payments for generic prescription medications can be as low as $1, and some generics ordered through Right SourceRx are free.[2]
