percent

CINCINNATI, April 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Medco Health Solutions, Inc. (NYSE: MHS), one of the nation's leading pharmacy benefit managers, announced its participation in the greater Cincinnati area's "Cover the Uninsured Week" programs from April 25-May 3. Businesses and the health care community have rallied around this program to raise awareness about the plight of the region's nearly 300,000 uninsured residents.

Programs sponsored by "Cover the Uninsured Week" help local residents who are uninsured or have limited benefits find access to programs that help make health care more affordable. In the spirit of the week, Medco is making its Medco Rx Discount Program(R) available at "Cover the Uninsured Week" programs in the region. Medco's discount card, which is not an insurance program, provides enrollees an opportunity to save an average of 14 to 45 percent off prescription medications and receive advanced pharmacy care from specialist pharmacists. Enrollees can fill prescriptions at Medco's mail-order pharmacy, or at any of the approximately 60,000 independent and chain retail pharmacies that participate in Medco's network. Enrollees, who must be over 18 years of age to enroll, do not have to satisfy any income requirements to obtain a discount card. The Medco's Rx Discount Program costs $25 annually for an individual and $40 per family.

In 2005, approximately 10.5 percent of the Greater Cincinnati population did not receive prescription medication because they needed the money to buy food, clothing or pay for housing, and 26.9 percent of the uninsured were unable to purchase needed medication, acc
