Date:1/7/2009

MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 7 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- MinuteClinic, the pioneer and largest provider of retail health care in the United States, announced that it has become a participating provider in the network of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida (BCBSF).

More than 4 million BCBSF health care members now have in-network access to MinuteClinic.

"We have a goal of creating consumer-driven health care solutions that provide convenient access and deliver cost savings," said Chip Phillips, MinuteClinic president. "By offering quality treatment in a convenient setting, we can work with Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida to help reduce health care insurance expenses for its members as well as time spent away from members' families and the workplace."

There are more than 50 MinuteClinic health care centers located inside select CVS/pharmacy stores in Florida in the Jacksonville, Miami-Fort Lauderdale, Orlando, Tampa Bay and West Palm markets.

MinuteClinic health care centers are staffed by masters-prepared, board-certified nurse practitioners who specialize in family health care and are trained to diagnose, treat and write prescriptions when clinically indicated for common family illnesses such as strep throat and ear, eye, sinus, bladder and bronchial infections. Common vaccinations such as influenza, tetanus, MMR, and Hepatitis A & B are also available. MinuteClinic retail locations are open seven days a week including weekday evening hours. No appointment is necessary.

MinuteClinic nurse practitioners utilize nationally recognized medical protocols to diagnose and treat health conditions. With the patient's consent, treatment information is shared with his or her primary care physician to facilitate continuity of care.
