Walmart will be offering Medicare Part D Prescription drug plans for 2011. While there has not been much detail provided about the plan design, it is suggested that the plan will have a $0 copay for generic drugs and very low cost monthly premiums
Walmart will utilize small kiosks in the store staffed by representatives licensed to sell the Medicare Part D Rx plans. There are not yet many details on the plan formulary but it will be offered through Humana. Members will only be able to use the new drug card at Walmart pharmacies. The plan will be available on November 15th which is the start of the Medicare Annual Election Period which is when Medicare Eligible members may sign up for a Part D Rx plan.
