CVS' Same-Day Prescription Delivery Expansion Is a Game-Changer

04/05/2019

CVS Pharmacy has rolled out same-day prescription delivery nationwide, making the chore of picking up prescriptions after a doctor's visit no longer necessary.

CVS will partner with Shipt to deliver eligible prescriptions the same day they're filled, a service available at 6,000 CVS Pharmacy locations.

Once a medication has been filled and is ready for pickup, patients can 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.

"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."

Along with eligible prescriptions, thousands of 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.

CVS also offers 1-2 day delivery nationwide for $4.99.
