Free Health Care Opportunity for Your Students

with one comment

Know students in your class who lack access to health care? Walgreen just announced that uninsured and unemployed families (with proof of unemployment) can receive treatment services at any of their clinics.

The Associated Press says:

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.

This article on Consumerist tells you where to find clinics, the hours of operation, and a cheap prescriptions.

Wal-Mart has a $4 prescription program (90 day prescriptions are $10). There are hundreds of prescriptions on the list – from antibiotic treatments to asthma medication.

Walgreen and Wal-Mart are offering amazing preventative care opportunities that could keep children and their families healthier. Spread the word.
