Here is the latest information listing all the health insurance companies that now offer the ScripTalk labels from their mail order pharmacies. Some pharmacies also provide ScripTalk at local pharmacies. (Check out the information below the list.) Unfortunately Walgreen’s developed their own talking prescription device. It is much less efficient in all ways.

The Scrip Talk prescription label reader comes free from En-Vision America. If you want more information you can call them:

When you ask your pharmacy for the ScripTalk prescription labels you should also consider how your medications come:

If it is pills in bottles then the ScripTalk label will be on the base of the bottle. You place the bottle on the ScripTalk reader, and it reads all the information (provided you have turned on the reader!)

If your medications comes in a box such as eye drops or a cream then you might want to ask for the special label to be placed on a hang tag. This is a thickish piece of film/plastic that is a flap on the side of the box. The special label will usually be on the outside of the flap, so it is easy to find. To get the hangtags you have to ask to speak to a pharmacist.

We are really getting there folks! Let us all know how you are doing with talking prescription labels.
