I remember seeing a few people asking where they could get diabetes medicine at low or no cost. Well while I was shopping at Publix today, I noticed a big brand new banner going up announcing this new service. I stopped by the pharmacy and noticed they had a new diabetes center complete with a ADA nutritionist and free magazine and cookbooks. I spoke to them about what their program was about. It sounds wonderful, all you need to do is sign up on the web site and then drop off your metformin script and you can get it free There's no limit to the number of refills of free medication you can receive. I also got a free pedometer:) The pharmacist was also very knowledgeable and had loads of info even offering to sit down with me and go over any questions I had on diabetes. Shame to say this , but she offered MORE information than my own Dr. Anyway, I was very excited to share this information with you all, hopefully it might be a good resource for anyone who may be having trouble getting the medication they need.

This may be of interest to diabetics in the Mid-Atlantic Eastern Region of the U.S., It's worth looking into :

That's so awesome that something like this is available! Unfortunately, Publix is apparently only in the Southern states, as there aren't any in PA where I live. But definitely an awesome idea! Glad to see things like this being done.

Me too Beth sounds good, But here in Philly Pa area and nothing around here. I wish we had a way to get lower price or free supplies. I pay 70 a month for all my meds now
