Wal-Mart's $4 Generic Prescription Drug List Added to Epocrates' Drug Reference Application
Date:2/19/2009

d need quick access to drug lists to do so," said Jeff Tangney, executive vice president of sales and marketing and co-founder of Epocrates. "We currently provide this support by electronically hosting insurance coverage information for more than 120 national and regional health plans, plus all Medicare Part D formularies. By working with Walmart to add its $4 generic prescription list, our subscribers now have access to even more affordable prescription options."

Beyond checking for health plan coverage of a drug, physicians can now see if their patients' new or existing prescription is available for $4 at Walmart, Neighborhood Market or Sam's Club pharmacies.

In a recent Epocrates survey, the majority of the 700 physician respondents expressed some level of concern that their patients were not complying with their prescription due to the economic climate. Patients are looking for more affordable medication options, with more than half of respondents writing more prescriptions for generic medications in 2008 compared to 2007.

"More patients are expressing concern about drug costs than ever before, and some are not filling expensive prescriptions," said Dr. Mike Tierney of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston. "By having access to Walmart's $4 list in Epocrates, I can suggest a lower cost alternative before patients even reach the pharmacy. I already use Epocrates to ensure drug safety, so it will be easy to discuss potential savings for them as well."

Epocrates' free drug and formulary guide is available online or for download to mobile devices, including iPhone(TM), BlackBerry(R), Windows Mobile(R), or Palm(R) devices. More than one in four U.S. physicians use the software to reference drug information, such as health plan coverage, adverse reactions, dosing and interactions with other therapies. Further information on the $4 prescription program is available at Walmart.com/pharmacy
