CINCINNATI, Jan. 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Kroger Co.

"Every January, our pharmacists and technicians help customers navigate through new plan transitions. It is part of our commitment to the health and wellness of the communities we serve," said Lincoln Lutz, Kroger's vice president of pharmacy. "Our pharmacists are once again available to answer questions and provide information about the new insurance plans. And, to ensure that our customers can get their medications without interruption, we are offering to fill certain prescriptions at no upfront cost for up to 30 days for customers who have signed up for the public health exchanges but have not yet received their plan ID card."

Customers are asked to provide confirmation of their enrollment in a public health insurance marketplace to a Kroger Family Pharmacy for verification of coverage.
