Walgreens Health Clinic: Free Clinic Visits for Unemployed

Walgreens has announced that Take Care patients who lose their job and health insurance after March 31, 2009 will be able to get free treatment at its in-store Take Care clinics for minor ailments. What's covered: "respiratory problems, allergies, infections and skin conditions, among other ailments." What's not: checkups, vaccinations or other injections, and prescriptions.

The program will last through the end of 2009 and is offered every weekday between 11:00 am and 3:00 pm. You can find the nearest clinic on this page. You can read the news story here.

If you need cheap meds, check out Walmart's $4 Prescriptions Program to see if your drug is on their cheap list.

I wonder if CVS will follow suit?!?! Will they top Walgreens by making it anyone who's lost their job and health insurance...not tying a date to the deal. It'd be nice!
