I saw this too! I immediately went to see if any of my scrips are on the list as I will be losing my insurance later this summer. I still can't tell if you need to have insurance to use it or not. It will help a lot of people that's for sure.

I could be wrong, but, as far as I know, you don't have to have insurance for the discounted meds, only a prescription from a dr.

You should also make sure the doctor writes the prescription for the generic brand.

This is one good thing Wally World is doing. It'll benefit a lot of fixed income and lower income folks out there.

Target matches the price, BTW.

Wow, I'm totally shocked and pleasantly surprised that they've got birth control on that list. That'll be nice to know I won't have to pay an arm and a leg once I lose health insurance when I quit my job to go back to school full time.

It is great that Walmart can use their power for good instead of evil. I still don't hafta like em. We have 3 super Walmarts within a 5 mile radius. :noway: There are 10 of them.. TEN Super Walmarts within 20 miles.

My grocery store, Publix, offers FREE 2-week supplies of antibiotics with a prescription. :heart:
