I don't go to the doctor often, but when I do I'm always shocked how much I have to pay for any medication and how annoying it is to go to the pharmacy. Did you know that you can have it delivered to your home, apartment, or house across the US for free?
When I went to visit the doctor last time, she ended the session by recommending a round of medicine for my cold (a bad one – I promise). But instead of just handing me a script and saying “Off you go to the pharmacy which will no doubt be closed when you actually get time to go” she instead said, “Have you heard of Capsule?”
My writing this article probably leads you to guess that I responded “Nope?”.
What is Capsule – the smarter, simpler, kinder pharmacy?
From their website:
Meds made easy
Capsule is the pharmacy that hand-delivers your prescriptions, the same day, for free—all from your phone.
Basically, you can get medicine delivered (regularly, too) to your home, house, loft, or apartment, for free! Not only that though, but the other thing that my doctor mentioned to me is also that Capsule works to keep the cost down of the medicine you purchased.
How does Capsule keep the cost of prescription medicine down?
My doctor explained to me that Capsule takes into account any discounts available, and any vouchers that are available for the medicine you're buying and applies them all to pass on to you.
This keeps the ultimate cost of the prescription medicine down and gives you the ability to know that you're not inconvenienced by just which pharmacy location you can visit easily.
Which cities and states does Capsule deliver medicine to?
This information is difficult to find and the most reliable way to know if they deliver to you is by going to their website and entering your zip code.
What I could find though:
The expansion to Houston builds on Capsule’s existing operations in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Austin, Boston, and more than a dozen other U.S. cities. By year’s end, Capsule anticipates it will have the ability to serve 100 million Americans.https://www.tmc.edu/news/2021/09/capsule-the-pharmacy-of-the-future-launches-in-houston-with-meds-made-easy-for-al/
How do you get prescription medicine delivered to your home?
All you have to do is: When your doctor asks which pharmacy you use, simply say “Capsule” instead of “CVS” or whichever other local pharmacy you visit.
This will then fire off your details to Capsule who will follow up with you through a text or email, and then through their app once you've got it.
You can route all existing medication through to Capsule as well, you just need to download the app, signup (for free), and then fill in the details of your prescription.
