takecare

Here is the AP press release on Walgreens new program to help those who are uninsured due to a recent job loss.

Walgreen will offer free clinic visits to the unemployed and uninsured for the rest of the year, providing tests and routine treatment for minor ailments through its walk-in clinics _ though patients will still pay for prescriptions.

Walgreen said patients who lose their job and health insurance after March 31 will be able to get free treatment at its in-store Take Care clinics for respiratory problems, allergies, infections and skin conditions, among other ailments. Typically those treatments cost $59 or more for patients with no insurance.

I called a the clinic to confirm this was being offered  in our area.  The nice lady I talked to was a little confused on the details and asked to call me back.

Call your store and confirm before you go.

If you have any details about this new program, please leave a comment.
