Date:2/11/2009

COLUMBIA, S.C., Feb. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Welvista is pleased to announce it has reached an agreement with Takeda to dispense a selection of the company's medications to the uninsured through Welvista's no-cost prescription medication program. With the addition of six Takeda products, Welvista now has 213 drugs on its formulary for the uninsured. Including Takeda, Welvista now partners with 12 pharmaceutical companies, making it the largest mail-order pharmacy for the uninsured in the country.

Welvista provides an innovative prescription drug program for residents in South Carolina and Texas who fall below 200 percent of the federal poverty level and are without health insurance coverage. The William E. Murray pharmacy, located at Welvista's headquarters off Forest Drive in Columbia, dispensed more than $34.5 million dollars in prescription medications in 2008 to Welvista's patients to treat diabetes, hypertension, mental illness and more.

Welvista also provides oral healthcare services for the children of limited income families in South Carolina through Smiles for a Lifetime, with centers in Allendale County, Dillon II, and Clarendon I and II school districts, and Charleston.

"We are excited to have Takeda as our newest pharmaceutical partner. We couldn't exist without our generous partners," says Welvista CEO Ken Trogdon. "We are committed to improving health and wellness for the uninsured. Our model has proven its viability and we will continue to add prescription drugs that we know our patients need."
