AmeriHealth promotes generic drug usage with free samples

AmeriHealth offers free one-month generic samples

Patients receive generic samples for one course of treatment, usually a 30-day supply.

MedVantx has installed automated sample dispensers, ATM-like devices that contain a variety of generic medicine samples for physicians to dispense.
