GREEN BAY, Wis. — Shopko is the latest retailer to offer prescriptions at no upfront cost to customers who have enrolled in the new health insurance marketplaces but haven't received their identification cards.
The retail chain said Monday that it would offer supplies of prescriptions in the interim to customers who could provide proof of enrollment. The chain operates 326 stores in the Midwest, Rocky Mountain, North Central and Pacific Northwest regions.
"Consistent with our usual practice, Shopko will do what is needed to take care of the customer so they do not experience any delays filling prescriptions and getting necessary medications," Shopko COO Mike Bettiga said.
