Date:2/19/2009

Prescribers Now Have Access to Low-Price Generic Options, Helping Consumers Save Money on Prescriptions

(WMT) today announced its list of up to 350 prescriptions on its $4 generic drug program will now be accessible to physicians using an Epocrates clinical decision support product online or via a mobile device.

At Walmart, Neighborhood Market and Sam's Club pharmacies nationwide, customers can get up to a 30-day supply of up to 350 generic prescriptions for only $4 and a 90-day supply for $10.* Now, before writing a prescription, physicians can quickly check and compare the Walmart drug list using Epocrates to see if a less expensive alternative is available. If there are other options, patients taking chronic medications for diseases, such as diabetes and hypertension, could receive significant monthly savings.
