Kinney Drugs offers 30-day prescriptions at no upfront cost to certain Obamacare enrollees

Customers who have enrolled in healthcare exchanges but not received ID numbers are eligible

NEW YORK — Regional chain Kinney Drugs is the latest to offer prescriptions at no upfront cost to some customers who have enrolled in Obamacare, according to published reports.

The Syracuse, N.Y., Post-Standard reported Friday that the Gouverneur, N.Y.-based chain would offer 30-day prescriptions to customers who have enrolled, but have not received an identification number. The offer is good through the month of January. Kinney operates 99 stores in central and northern New York and adjacent areas of Vermont.

Several national retail chains have announced similar plans, including Walgreens, CVS, Rite Aid, Walmart and Kroger.
