Walmart Expands Program to Provide Talking Prescription Containers

Article from the Law Office of Lainey Feingold:

Do you need information about how to order Talking Prescription containers for prescription medication obtained from Walmart? You’ll find everything you need in this post. In June, 2012, Walmart became the first national pharmacy retailer to offer Talking Prescription Containers free of charge to persons with visual impairments. The ScripTalk Talking Prescription program is being offered to customers across the country through Walmart mail order. In addition to the national mail order program, Walmart now offers ScripTalk at 33 stores around the country. A list of stores where ScripTalk is available, as well as instructions for ordering, appear below. Read the June, 2012 Walmart press release announcing its ScripTalk initiative.

Information you need to order Talking Prescription Containers from Walmart

  • To order ScripTalk talking prescription containers for use with prescription medications obtained from Walmart, you must first contact Walmart. For mail order, Walmart has a dedicated toll free phone line for ScripTalk requests. The toll free number is 1-888-227-3403. You may also contact any of the stores listed below directly for information on receiving ScripTalk containers from those stores. 
  • To listen to the talking label provided by Walmart, you will need reading device from Envision America, the company that makes ScripTalk. The device is called the ScripTalk reader (or the ScripTalk machine or device) and is available free of charge to Walmart pharmacy customers who are blind. After you have contacted Walmart, you will need to contact Envision America to order your device. Envision America has a dedicated toll-free line for requests, and for general ScripTalk service & inquiries. The toll-free Envision America number is 1-855-773-2579 (1-855-SPEAK-RX.)
  • You only need to order the device once: it will work with any Talking Prescription label you receive from Walmart.
  • Walmart is currently also offering the Talking Prescription labels in thirty three stores across the country, listed at the end of this post. As with mail order, you will need to contact both the Walmart store (for the prescription medication) and Envision America (for the ScripTalk reader).
  • If you are a Walmart customer with a visual impairment who’s store is not yet offering ScripTalk, contact Walmart at 1-888-227-3403 to request that the ScripTalk containers be offered at your store. Please use the Contact form on this Website to let us know if you have made a request.
  • We also welcome your feedback about the Walmart Talking Prescription Container initiative. To contact the Law Office of Lainey Feingold, please use the Contact Form on this website. To contact co-counsel at Goldstein, Borgen, Dardarian and Ho, please call toll free at 1-800-822-5000.
