In 2006, Walmart launched a program that cut prices of nearly 300 generic prescription drugs to $4 per prescription for a month’s supply. This is a nation-wide program and is available to people with or without insurance. My thesis research examines the impact of a private firm’s pricing policy on health spending behavior, health utilization and health outcomes.
