New law in Colorado enables Wal-Mart to offer more drugs at discount

June 9, 2008

Wal-Mart expands the number of discounted drugs it is offering in Colorado after a new pricing law is passed.

Wal-Mart is making available more than 60 additional drugs at $4 for a 30-day supply in Colorado. This expanded program was made possible thanks to the passage of SB 246, which amends Colorado’s Unfair Practices Act. As a result, retailers can sell prescriptions at discounted prices while ensuring that consumers and companies are protected against predatory pricing and monopolistic business practices. The expanded drugs include products to treat diabetes, hypertension, depression, and other conditions. These prescriptions will also be available at $10 for a 90-day supply.
