Walmart is shaking up the Medicare drug marketplace again. They shocked the competition in September of 2006 with the announcement they were making generic drugs available for $4 per prescription. This time, as the cost soars for the most popular Medicare drug plans, the discounter is joining with Humana to introduce a national Medicare drug plan with a very low monthly premium of just $14.80 plus low copays and cost-shares.
Humana Inc. on October 1, 2010 announced the innovative Medicare Part D prescription drug plan, co-branded with Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (“Walmart”), that it says “can provide significant savings on monthly plan premiums and prescription medicine copayments and cost-shares for Medicare beneficiaries, including seniors and people with disabilities.”
