 SOMETHING TO CATCH YOUR EYE -- From    NCECBVI -- January 26, 2015



We thought you might be interested in this letter that recently came our way from Patti Neill, Statewide ATP Program Coordinator.

Hello. I thought you'd be interested to learn about progress that has been made recently with a few major pharmacy chains and their willingness to make audible prescription labels available to their customers. Please pass this on to anyone you think may be interested or in need.

Walmart has made ScripTalk available to its mail order pharmacy customers for the past 2 years and will now implement ScripTalk at any of their local pharmacies when a customer requests it. All the customer has to do is ask their local pharmacist for audible prescription labels. If the pharmacist is not familiar with the program, the customer should tell the pharmacist to "Search for ScripTalk on The WIRE." The pharmacist will know that The WIRE is Walmart's internal communication system for its pharmacists and that they just need to search for the term "ScripTalk" to find instructions on how to get it implemented locally.

Walgreens is now offering a Talking Pill Reminder via its mail order pharmacy and at its local pharmacies. Customers make a request for the Talking Pill Reminder directly to their local pharmacist or by calling Walgreens' national customer service number, 1-800-925-4733.

CVS has been offering audible prescriptions via its mail order pharmacy for the past year. Nothing is currently being offered for locally-filled CVS prescriptions, but this may change with increased demand by customers.
