Amazon made its latest healthcare play official Tuesday morning, debuting RxPass, a $5-per-month subscription service to have generic drugs delivered to Prime members for free. 

The tech giant said that RxPass covers medications for more than 80 medical conditions, including high blood pressure, anxiety and acid reflux among others.

The service is available for Prime members, who can add RxPass from Amazon Pharmacy to their monthly subscription through the company website or Prime app. 

“It’s estimated that more than 150 million Americans take one or more of the medications available through the RxPass monthly subscription,” Dr. Vin Gupta, chief medical officer of Amazon Pharmacy, said in a statement. “RxPass is our latest effort to help patients save time, save money, and stay healthy. It’s available now to customers in most U.S. states.”

Gupta added that RxPass seeks to fill in the gaps present in the healthcare industry that contribute to poor health outcomes for consumers and impart their ability to receive access to basic medicines. 

The move is sure to have significant reverberations in the healthcare industry, though Amazon’s healthcare ambitions have hardly been a secret in recent years.

In mid-2018, Amazon teamed with J.P. Morgan Chase and Berkshire Hathaway to found Haven Healthcare, a nonprofit joint venture aimed at tackling the high cost of healthcare. However, the highly-touted project led by CEO Atul Gawande ultimately failed to meet its lofty goals and closed up shop in early 2021.  

This is also not the first pharma move for Amazon, which made its interest in the space known in 2018 when it acquired PillPack for $750 million. 

The announcement follows a busy 2022 for Amazon in the healthcare arena. 

RxPass’ debut comes two months after Amazon launched Amazon Clinic, a virtual care platform connecting patients to providers for treatment of 20 different health conditions. Additionally, RxPass is taking off more than four months after the company folded Amazon Care following its launch in 2019. 

Beyond the pharma sector, Amazon also announced in July 2022 that it would acquire One Medical, a primary care company, for nearly $4 billion. Earlier in the year, Amazon and Teladoc Health announced that they would partner on a program to provide virtual medical care.
