BENTONVILLE, Ark. — Sam’s Club has vowed to help Americans achieve their health goals without straining their wallets by offering free health screenings throughout the year for both members and non-members.
The free screenings will be available at all 617 U.S. Sam’s Club locations with pharmacies. The first will take place on January 9 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., while supplies last, with a key health indicator review, valued at $150, which includes tests for blood pressure, total cholesterol, HDL (good cholesterol), glucose, body mass index (BMI), vision and hearing. (Vision and hearing tests are not available at all locations.)
“For the last five years, we have been proud to offer these free screenings as an easy and affordable way for the communities we serve to stay on top of their health,” said Jill Turner-Mitchael, senior vice president of Sam’s Club consumables and health and wellness. “Health and wellness remains a top priority for Sam’s Club and we are constantly striving to find ways to make healthcare more accessible.”
In addition to free health screenings, Sam’s Club pharmacies also provide other savings and preventive care to each community they serve, such as year-round immunizations for children and adults, the company says. Eligible Sam’s Club Plus members can also save even more on prescriptions, including exclusive discounts on select generic prescriptions, some of which are available free of charge or at a discounted cost of $4 or $10 for a 30-day supply.
