Yes, OP, you can get your Lisinopril for $10 per 90-day supply at Walmart or Walmart.com.

No insurance needed. Just a prescription is needed

Or if you do not have access to a Walmart store, you can use Walmart Home Delivery (for delivery of medications) Go to walmart.com and choose pharmacy and then read Home Delivery.

The prescriptions are delivered free through U.S. Postal Service.

OP, if you want to say where you live (town and state) I can look up where nearby free clinics or sliding scale clinics are located, if you'd like. (to obtain a prescription if you need one)

Call your physician and ask what is he/her price for a normal visit. A routine visit should not be more than $200 at a primary care provider.
Is this really true as a not outrageous price?

I emigrated from the U.S. in 2000, and I wasn't paying even half of this in Manhattan, NYC.

Today I went to a private doctor in Western Europe, an orthopedist actually, and the bill was the euro equivalent of 68.00 USD, and for 60 20 mg. Lisinopril I pay the equivalent of 10.62 USD....and I only use 10 mg/diem.

That's a very normal price for a routine visit to a pcp. It depends on where you go and where you live, but it seems the average price is about $100-$200. For specialists, it is a lot more. You need to contact your physician's office and see what they can do. If you can pay in full, they will give you a discount.

A pharmacy which is only charging $10 for 90 tablets of lisinopril is losing money. It should cover drug cost but not all of labor cost.

Assuming once you get a new prescription ... You can call your local Costco warehouse. They can give your pricing over the phone. You don't have to be a member to get Rx filled there.

Thank you for the U.S. price info, I was just curious.

I think perhaps you misunderstood some of what I wrote:

"I emigrated from the U.S. in 2000, ....

"Today I went to a private doctor in Western Europe, an orthopedist actually, and the bill was the euro equivalent of 68.00 USD, and for 60 20 mg. Lisinopril I pay the equivalent of 10.62 USD....and I only use 10 mg/diem."

My private office visits don't come close to U.S. costs, ditto surgery and ditto for blood analysis and imaging. Most of the prescriptions I used are below U.S. costs as well.

That can take some time, these clinics have limited resources and depend heavily on volunteers for staffing and donations for services.
I grew up poor. It was a long time ago, but people could walk into a free clinic and expect care. Find a free clinic: Find a Clinic | National Association of Free and Charitable Clinics

CVS and Walgreen stores will offer in store clinics also that accept Medicaid.

Are there any places to buy this RX?

Thanks for sharing.
I take the same strength of Lisinopril
It is a very low cost drug
You should just call around and check various pharmacies
If you are buying over the counter vs w/insurance maybe your doctor will give RX that allows you to get a 6 mo count vs a 90 day which is what most insurance plans want and that might cuts some off the price

There was time I had problem w/my RX insurance coverage and was out of state-
I paid less w/o insurance than with a co-pay
And I have read recent article that is the case with some drugs and RX coverage plans
Pharmacists are also prohibited by state law or maybe Federal from telling customers they can buy the drug cheaper w/o insurance since the co-pay is what raises the price
Laws like that are the work of the drug lobby in coordination w/politicians to keep their profits up...

Drugs--like other items sold in stores--can be "loss leaders"
Meaning their low costs are used to lure people into stores to spend money on other items
And it could be the pharmacy itself has deal with the drug company to offset prices of some drugs while others are higher...
