Walmart Talking Prescription Label Pilot Program
Hopefully you have heard by now that Walmart has introduced ScripTalk
Talking Prescription Containers free of charge for persons with visual
impairments as part of a pilot program. The ScripTalk Talking Prescription
program is being offered through Walmart mail order to customers across the
country, and also at three Walmart stores.
Here is the information you need to take advantage of this exciting
opportunity. We encourage you to do so if at all possible, and to share this
information with friends and neighbors who have visual impairments and would
benefit from the ScripTalk program.
1. To listen to the talking label provided by Walmart, you will need to
first get a reading device from Envision America, the company that makes
ScripTalk. The device is called the ScripTalk reader (or the ScripTalk
machine). This device is available free of charge to people who are blind
and visual impairments. You only need to order the device once: it will work
with the Talking Prescription labels you receive repeatedly from Walmart.
Please contact En-Vision America at 800-890-1180 to order a free ScripTalk
Talking prescription reader. Envision America will also be able to answer
many questions regarding insurance coverage and costs and discounts for
2. After you talk to Envision America, you will need to call Walmart to
order your prescription medication. The phone number for the Walmart Mail
Order pharmacy is 1-800-273-3455 (1-800-2-REFILL). When you order your
prescription tell them you want the Talking Prescription label (also known
as the ScripTalk label). There is no extra charge for the label.
3. Walmart is currently also offering the Talking Prescription labels in the
following three stores. As with mail order, you will need to contact both
the Walmart store (for the prescription medication) and Envision America
(for the ScripTalk reader (also called the ScripTalk machine)).
214 Haynes St., Talladega, AL 35160 (256) 761-1681
2270 W. Main St., Tupelo, MS 38801 (662) 844-4011
601 Englewood Pkwy., Englewood, CO 80110 (303) 789-7209
4. If you have feedback about your experiences with Walmart or with Envision
America, please contact us through Scott Grimes in Linda's office. Scott can
be reached by email at: prescription.access at gdblegal.com or toll free
By participating in Walmart's Talking Prescription pilot, you will be
helping Walmart understand how important accessible prescription information
is to people with visual impairments. We are also working with other
pharmacy retailers on these issues, and we are confident that if Walmart's
pilot is successful, it will help pharmacies across the country understand
that talking prescription information is critical to the health, safety and
privacy of people with visual impairments.
Thank you for helping to make accessible prescription information a reality
in the United States.
