New Walmart Program Broadens Access to Affordable Prescriptions in Michigan
Date:5/4/2009

Retailer to offer 90-day prescription supply for $10 via free mail delivery;

Pilot program launches in Michigan today

BENTONVILLE, Ark., May 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Today in Michigan Walmart announced a pilot program which will offer a 90-day supply of 300 generic prescriptions, each for $10* via free mail delivery. Beginning today, from Detroit to Grand Rapids to Alpena, Michiganders across the state will be able to take advantage of this new affordable pharmacy program from Walmart by calling 1-800-2REFILL. Additionally, Walmart's free mail delivery program has no gimmicks, no memberships and no enrollment fees. This announcement signals Walmart's commitment to help consumers save money on prescriptions regardless of whether or not they live close to a Walmart pharmacy location.

"When we launched our $4 prescription program in 2006, it truly changed the pharmacy landscape. Consumers were finally able to significantly save on the medications they needed," said Dr. John Agwunobi, Walmart's president of the health and wellness division. "So we asked ourselves 'what more can we do,' and vowed to continue looking for opportunities that would bring greater value and convenience to consumers. Our $10 mail delivery prescription pilot program is a reflection of Walmart's commitment to drive unnecessary costs out of the health care system so Americans can live healthier, better lives. Now regardless of whether consumers in Michigan have a Walmart pharmacy in their local community or not, we can help save them money."

In addition to the 300 generic prescriptions for $10 each, Walmart's free mail delivery program provides access to more than 3,000 other affordable brand and generic prescriptions, making it convenient for Michiganders to fill all their prescriptions via one simple and affordable program, especially if they don't live near a Walmart store or Sam's Club pharmacy.
