Smith’s responds to health reform in Utah by offering $4 generic drugs

In response to growing healthcare issues in Utah, Smith’s Food & Drug Stores will immediately offer generic drugs for $4 per prescription in all its stores in Utah. The program will benefit individuals and families without insurance and outdoes the co-pay many health plans impose for generic drugs.

The $4 price will apply to more than 300 generic drugs prescribed for 30-day use and will be available at 47 pharmacies at Smith’s stores in Utah, including Park City. The initiative includes generic alternatives for some of the most commonly prescribed drugs used to treat conditions such as diabetes, asthma, depression, heart disease, thyroid and other health problems. A list of the participating pharmacies and eligible generic drugs are available at or by calling 1-877-4RX-LIST (1-877-479-5478).

Consumers interested in these low-price generic drugs should consult their doctor or a Smith’s pharmacist to determine if a generic drug is available for their prescription. These $4 prescriptions are available in Smith’s pharmacies, online and through telephone orders for customers to pick up in a store.

Separately, Smith’s will offer generic versions of the family planning drugs Ortho Cyclen(R) and Ortho Tri Cyclen(R) (28-day supply) and a fertility drug for $9.
