Major pharmacies to tout benefits of health reform law for seniors
Prominent pharmacies such as CVS Caremark and Walgreens will promote the healthcare reform law's benefits for seniors, federal health officials announced. The joint effort between the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and major pharmacy chains means Medicare beneficiaries will have better access to details about the administration's health law, HHS stated. The information will be available in brochures or, in the case of Wal-Mart and Sam's Club, online. "Our pharmacy partners are helping their customers make informed healthcare decisions," HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said Wednesday at a CVS location in Jacksonville, Fla.
