Date:9/22/2011

KANSAS CITY, Mo., Sept. 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Argus Health Systems, Inc., a leading transparent pharmacy benefits administrator, today announced an arrangement with Walmart to provide expanded network services. This Preferred Network approach coordinates efforts by Argus and Walmart to provide the lowest prescription benefit cost to Argus customers.

This agreement enables Argus to offer their customers a more cost-effective pharmacy network alternative. Access to care becomes more affordable for the members utilizing this network. Providing quality care at a low cost is a crucial component for member health, since affordable medicine now can prevent costly medical expenses in the future.

"With results based on a cost analysis of pricing currently in effect, we see a potential cost savings to our customers of more than two percent in the Preferred Network over an open network," said Jonathan Boehm, president and CEO, Argus Health Systems.
