Drug Plan Enrollment and Other Resources

October is also a prime time for companies to offer benefits enrollment, including drug plans. In addition, the federal government's Medicare Part D prescription drug plan enrollment is Nov. 15 – Dec. 31, 2010. Customers who visit any of the more than 500 Sam's Club pharmacies can also take advantage of free help navigating the national online enrollment site offered by the attending pharmacist. The options can seem complicated at first, but Sam's Club pharmacists are well-equipped to answer questions about them.

"You don't need a membership to use our pharmacy, so we want to invite our communities in and show them all the resources available at their local Sam's Club," said Turner-Mitchael. "We want people to know that our pharmacists are there for them, and available to provide trusted advice on the decisions that can affect their quality of life the most."

In addition, more than 400 Sam's Clubs with pharmacies are offering free health screenings on Oct. 9. The screenings, which are held quarterly, can help people detect a range of preventable health problems at the beginning of cold and flu season. Screenings may include bone density tests, screenings for osteoporosis, blood pressure checks and tests for cholesterol and glucose. Tests are geared for adults 18 and older.

According to an annual Gallup Poll, pharmacists are among the most trusted professions. The yearly ratings of honesty and ethics put pharmacists consistently high on the list, along with doctors and police officers, indicating a high level of confidence from the American public.

Sam's Club is located in 48 states and Puerto Rico, employs more than 1,200 pharmacists.
