I recently mentioned this within a different discussion and was emailed by another member about the subject so I thought I would share it again. Wal-Mart Pharmacy's do NOT require a prescription if you need the 70/30 mix insulin. Novolin or Humulin (these are the 2 I know about for sure). You just go to the pick-up window and tell them how many vials you need and they will get them for you without a prescription. For those of us with no insurance this works out well because it does not require a doctor visit just to have them write a script for it. For those with insurance that covers your scripts you'll need to still do it as a script in order for your insurance to pay for it I'm sure. I usually get 2 at a time and now that we are about 70-75miles from the nearest Wal-Mart that is a huge help not to have to wait in line for the script to be filled (they always say 30min but its never that quick lol) Anyway, hope this helps some of you out!
Hugs & Luv,
