Wal-Mart rolls out $4 prescription drug plan in Washington

SPOKANE, Wash. - Wal-Mart announced Thursday morning in Spokane and Seattle that it will expand its $4 prescription drug program to Washington and ten other states.

And not only did it add more states, the company also added 17 generic prescription drugs to its list.

Wal-Mart has spurned a price war among competitors for prescription drugs with its plan that slashes prices on many of the most popular drugs.  The plan includes more than 300 generic drugs, including those for high blood pressure and high cholesterol.  Both Target and Costco have rolled out similar lower-cost plans to retain customers.
