Walgreens to Offer Free Healthcare Clinics

Walgreens. The Pharmacy (Unemployed) America Trusts. If you lose your job and health insurance tomorrow, you can now turn to the drugstore for routine treatment and testing for minor ailments.

Today Walgreens announced plans to offer walk-in clinics free of charge. The in-store Take Care clinics can address problems like respiratory illnesses, infections like pink eye, allergies, and skin conditions. Patients will probably cross their fingers that they won't be prescribed a pricey drug, since they'll still have to pay for prescriptions.

The idea is to keep people out of urgent-care and emergency rooms. Customers will have to prove that they're unemployed, and once they get health insurance back, they'll have to pay for future screenings, which typically cost $59.

This sounds like a good plan for both the uninsured and Walgreens. The company can increase awareness about its service, and those facing tough times can buffer the consequences of unemployment.
