Customer demand leads to $4 prescription program launching in 11 more states today; 17 new prescriptions added to the program BENTONVILLE, Ark. - Nov. 16, 2006 - Wal-Mart Stores, Inc., (NYSE: WMT)
announced that its 20 pharmacies in Idaho will begin participating in Wal-Mart's $4
generic prescription program starting today. In addition, the company announced that it
is adding 17 more prescriptions to the program.
"We've received an amazing amount of positive feedback from the millions of seniors,working families and uninsured who are already taking advantage of this program," saidWal-Mart President and CEO Lee Scott. "We've added more medicines to our program sowe can extend these significant savings to even more Americans. No one should be deniedaccess to the medications they need, and this program is a big step in moving our customersand communities toward access to affordable medicines in Idaho." Today's announcement brought 11 new states with a total of 502 pharmacies into the $4generics program. Along with Idaho, the new states are: Kentucky, Maine,Massachusetts, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Utah, Washingtonand West Virginia. The program kicked off in Florida in September, with plans to spreadoutside the state in January 2007. However, customer demand led Wal-Mart toaccelerate the rollout of the program, which is now available in 3,009 pharmacies in 38states.
In making the announcement, Bill Simon, executive vice president of Wal-Mart'sProfessional Services Division, said that the $4 generics program now includes 331generic prescriptions available for up to a 30-day supply at commonly prescribeddosages. According to, the list also includes 14 of the top 20 prescribedmedications in the United States. The list is made up of as many as 143 compounds in 26therapeutic categories.
Generic medicines generally cost between 30 percent and 60 percent less than equivalentbrand-name products, and Wal-Mart estimates that its list of $4 generic prescriptionsrepresents more than one in four of the prescriptions currently dispensed in itspharmacies nationwide. To date, as new states have been added to the program, 2.1million more new prescriptions have been filled in those states as compared to the sametime periods last year.
Simon said the customer response has been significant. He said that he has heardhundreds of stories from customers and pharmacists about the program's value. He alsonoted that many customers have greatly benefited from the savings.
"One of our Dallas-area pharmacists told me about a Hurricane Katrina evacuee whoneeded two medications costing $155 a month," Simon said. "But with his benefitsexhausted, no insurance, and no steady work, all he could get was $25 from a charity tohelp defray the costs. When our pharmacist discovered that one of his two medicationswas covered by the $4 program, he worked with the doctor to switch his other cholesterolmedication to a $4 alternative. This man went from not being able to afford hismedications to having $17 left over, which he used to buy diapers and some staplegroceries. Our pharmacist wrote, 'That doesn't sound like a great deal of money, but letme tell you, to someone that has mouths to feed and is worried about not getting theirmedication, it's huge!' This is just one of many instances that show me how we arechanging peoples' lives for the better." Savings on top-selling prescription medications in the program are projected to besignificant. For specific medications, the company estimates the following approximatesavings to Wal-Mart, Neighborhood Market and Sam's Club customers and members inthe 38 states in the program, based on September average retail prices • Metformin (500 mg), a diabetes medication: about $1.3 million monthly and $16 million annually on this medication.
• Warfarin (5 mg), a medication to prevent blood clots: about $750,000 monthly and $9 million annually on this medication.
Simon said that Wal-Mart will continue to push for expansion to other states as quicklyas possible. "We're moving this forward as quickly as possible, but we need to do it in away that doesn't hamper our ability to serve our customers," he said.
Generics contain the same high quality active ingredients as their brand-namecounterparts and are equally effective but cost significantly less. Consumers interested insaving money on prescriptions through the program should ask their doctor if a generic isavailable for their prescription and is right for them.
At this time, the $4 prescriptions are not available by mail order, but are available onlineor by telephone for refills only for in-person pickup in Alabama, Alaska, Arizona,Arkansas,Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine,Maryland,Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire,New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, RhodeIsland, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington andWest Virginia. For further information on the program, including store locations,customers can call 1-800-WAL-MART, go to, or visit their Wal-Mart, Neighborhood Market or Sam's Club in the 38 participating states to discuss theprogram with their pharmacist or pick up a brochure explaining program details.
In addition to offering the $4 generics program in 38 states, Wal-Mart and Sam's Clubpharmacies offer multiple benefits to consumers. With its proprietary interactivecomputersystem, Wal-Mart speeds up workflow and accuracy in product distribution, allowingpharmacists to spend more time with customers.
The company also designates one pharmacy associate per store to be a "Medicare Part Dexpert," who, in conjunction with its in-store informational kiosks, helps customersunderstand both the enrollment process and the benefits to which they are entitled. Thesesystems have enabled the retailer to help enroll 1,080,000 people for the Medicare Part Dprescription drug benefit, as of October 26, 2006. Wal-Mart pharmacies' sophisticatedcoordination of benefits services enables it to process up to four payors for Medicarebeneficiaries, and up to three payors for non-Medicare beneficiaries, leading to lessreimbursement hassle and paperwork for customers.
Wal-Mart has revolutionized the packaging of pharmaceuticals by offering safer, user-friendly blister packs that contain individual periodic doses of medications, along withdetails and easy-to-understand instructions for consumers. In addition, Wal-Mart offerslow pricing on over-the-counter cough, cold and fever medications. The companyestimates its customers will save approximately $20 million on cough, cold and fevermedications this cold and flu season.
