CVS Pharmacy is offering prescription delivery within hours, in addition to their 1-2 day prescription delivery service available nationwide. The new service aims to give patients a faster and more convenient way to obtain their medications.

CVS is utlizing Shipt, a same-day delivery marketplace, to make deliveries from 6000 CVS Pharmacy locations across the country.

"A year ago CVS Pharmacy redefined convenience for customers by introducing prescription delivery nationwide in order to extend the connection that our trusted, local pharmacists provide to their customers at our nearly 10,000 locations around the country," said Kevin Hourican, President of CVS Pharmacy, in a prepared statement. "Today we've taken another step forward by expanding same-day delivery nationwide and enhancing the experience with our On-Demand delivery service."

Through CVS Pharmacy's newest delivery offering, the majority of its stores are able to offer same-day delivery of eligible prescriptions. When a medication has been filled and is ready for pickup, patients can opt to have their medications delivered within hours. They simply have to select On-Demand prescription delivery service via the CVS Pharmacy app, through SMS text, or by calling their local CVS Pharmacy.

The delivery charge for this serviceis $7.99.

Along with eligible prescriptions, thousands of the most popular health and household items carried by CVS Pharmacy, including cold and flu remedies, allergy medications, pain relief, first aid, digestive health, vitamins, baby, personal and feminine care products, can be added to delivery orders.
Patients who don't need their medications as quickly, or who are looking for a lower cost delivery option, can select 1-2 day delivery which is available from CVS Pharmacy locations nationwide.

The fee for 1-2 day delivery is $4.99.

CVS Pharmacy, the retail division of CVS Health, is committed to providing innovative service offerings to ensure that its patients get the medications and store essentials they need when and where they need them and at prices they can afford, according to the company. In addition, CVS Pharmcy will continue to enhance and refine its delivery service in the months to come.
