Amazon on Tuesday introduced new pharmacy offerings to help customers in the US conveniently purchase their prescription medications, giving drug retailers such as Walmart and Walgreens new competition.

Amazon said that Prime members can access savings on medications at Amazon Pharmacy when paying without insurance, as well as at over 50,000 other participating pharmacies nationwide.

The launch of Amazon Pharmacy is not unexpected as it has taken a number of steps to enter the healthcare market. It had bought pharmaceutical delivery startup PillPack for just under $1 billion in 2018.

The company said that PillPack is part of Amazon Pharmacy and remains a “distinct service” for customers managing multiple daily medications for chronic conditions.

Customers who take multiple daily medications and prefer pre-sorted dose packaging should continue to choose PillPack, Amazon said.
