Economist — Free Health Care: But Not From The Government

Mark Perry:

NEW YORK - Drugstore operator Walgreens will offer free clinic visits to the unemployed and uninsured for the rest of the year, providing tests and routine treatment for minor ailments through its walk-in clinics – though patients will still pay for precriptions.

Walgreens said patients who lose their job and health insurance after March 31 will be able to get free treatment at its in-store Take Care clinics for respiratory problems, allergies, infections and skin conditions, among other ailments. Typically those treatments cost $59 or more for patients with no insurance.
Walgreens runs 341 Take Care clinics (pictured above) in 35 markets around the country, including Chicago, Atlanta, Miami and Cleveland.
