I mention this because I would think grocery stores and big box retail stores in other parts of the country might have similar drug prescription programs. It's worth investigating, anyway, IMO.
First I've heard of store pharmacies having free drugs - I found this list:

Since I might be moving to SC this fall, I'm going to have to keep Publix in mind for my prescriptions.

I see Lisinopril is on the free list at Publix. My mother has no prescription drug coverage ( she never bothered signing up for a Part D plan when these became available, despite my trying to spoon feed her the information and trying to get her to do it. Oh well). So I have always shopped around, looked for coupons, to get her the lowest prices I could, and have discovered many of these programs. Since it's me who gets her her prescriptions, I plan to switch hers to Publix as her Lisinopril will be free and the other drugs she takes will be on their $7.50 for 90 days supply. And I will happily shop at Publix because I am grateful they have these programs.

Sort of off topic hear but Publix is my favorite store.
