Shopping for Health Insurance…at Walmart?! | www.clarkhoward.com



"In the next week, the nation’s largest retailer is launching a health insurance buying service in 2,700 of its stores. The initiative is being called 'Healthcare Begins Here.' They’re actually contracting with a third party called DirectHealth.com to help you do the shopping. Of course, Walmart is not itself getting into the health insurance business,  nor are they earning any commissions. They're just doing this to get bodies in their stores and to fill a gap in the marketplace because many people are confused about the new health care options.  "

"Warehouse clubs offer cheap prescriptions to non-membersA new report from The Florida Sun Sentinel finds the price of a prescription can vary by as much as $170 for a 30-day supply.

A reporter named Doreen Christensen called around to price a Lexapro prescription at a variety of retailers. Here's what she found:  "Costco $6.99; CVS $114.99; Publix $118; Sam’s Club $83;Target  $147.99;Walgreens $116.99; Walmart  $115.88 and Winn-Dixie $179.99."

The beauty of Costco is you don't need to be a member to use their pharmacy. Simply show up and explain you want a prescription filled. Many Costcos have a separate entrance for their pharmacies to accommodate walk-in non-members."
