Walgreen's offers free health care for jobless


Walgreen Co. is the latest company to use the tactic of helping the unemployed, offering free visits to its clinics for people who lose their jobs and don't have insurance.

From free dress shirts for job interviews, to printing resumes for free or offering to buy back the new car you just bought if you lose your job, many businesses are finding that it makes good business to offer deals or giveaways to the jobless.

Walgreen's Take Care health clinics will offer free visits for the rest of the year to adults who lose their jobs on or after March 31, according to a Reuters story. Spouses, domestic partners and children also qualify if they don't have their own health insurance. A certification form must be completed. Walgreen has a short video on the program.
