One Tulsa pharmacy is offering free prescriptions for anyone who walks in the door, with a doctor's prescription that is. For many it sounds too good to be true, but Gen Script President Mark Wright says it's made possible by their unique business plan.
"So the business model is different from other pharmacies. We have a pricing structure that allows us to be very competitive on our pricing," said Pharmacist Mark Wright.
At Gen Scripts Pharmacy, all of the money that's saved on advertising goes straight to the customer. Located at 3980 South Hudson, Gen Scripts pharmacy is hoping to create a healthy community by offering a 10 day supply of antibiotics at the normal dosage. So why give out free antibiotics versus other drugs?
"The antibiotic is nearly always, if you have several prescriptions, the most important one to take so that's why we want to make sure its available and that doctors orders can be complied with," said Wright.
Six name brand antibiotics are available in the program.
"That's a pretty good deal, and one big relief," said customer Donald Jones.
