How to Order Walmart Talking Prescription Containers

Following up on the recent press release from Walmart, please read below to learn how to order Talking Prescription Containers.
On June 8, Walmart announced that it is now providing ScripTalk Talking Prescription Containers free of charge to people with vision loss as part of a pilot program. The ScripTalk Talking Prescription program is being offered to customers across the country through Walmart mail order, and also at three Walmart stores.
To listen to the talking label provided by Walmart, you will need to first get a reading device from En-Vision America, the company that makes ScripTalk. The device is called the ScripTalk reader (or the ScripTalk machine) and is available free of charge to Walmart customers who are blind.
You only need to order the device once: it will work with the Talking Prescription labels you receive repeatedly from Walmart.
Contact En-Vision America at 800-890-1180 to order your free ScripTalk talking prescription reader. En-Vision America will also be able to answer many questions regarding insurance coverage and costs and discounts for Walmart prescriptions.
After you talk to En-Vision 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.
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 En-Vision America (for the ScripTalk reader).
- 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
Feedback about the Walmart Talking Prescription Container pilot is welcomed. Please contact the Law Offices of Goldstein, Demchak, Baller, Borgen & Dardarian by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1-800-822-5000.

I support this act, food safety is essential to general public. Having this right will give us more guarantees.

Just found this post and I am thrilled. I have talked with En-Vision America several months ago hoping my mail order prescription company might join (which they did not). But, they did not mention that Wal-Mart mail order was using their product. I will definitely look into changing prescription proficers. And, I will be sure to pass this informtion on.

Just reviewed my post and realized I missed a letter in my url. Darn low vision and not using my reader on ZoomText when I am typing. I guess I get over confident.
