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.

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. 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.
