Amazon’s new drug prescription service is almost what the doctor ordered



Continuing its foray into the healthcare industry, Amazon is launching its own drug prescription service for Prime members called RxPass, which lets consumers purchase generic medication for $5 a month.

At launch, you’ll have access to more than 50 different medications (opens in new tab) to treat over 80 common health conditions from diabetes to gout and even high blood pressure.
