Price Chopper locations with pharmacies will now offer free prescription diabetes medications such as metformin, glipizide and glyburide, as well as free lancets and lancing devices when you fill those prescriptions. They are giving away the free drugs as part of a “comprehensive integrated diabetes management program.”

From the store’s press release:

Price Chopper pharmacists, in their 1-on-1 consultations, will take a more
active role encouraging and educating patients on the use of blood sugar recording logs
as tools to enhance the communication of progress with their physicians.

“Diabetes patients will now have a single destination for their prescriptions,
nutritional information and everything else they might need to help them manage their
diabetes. As health professionals, nutrition specialists and providers of life-sustaining
products, Price Chopper is both equipped and committed to turning the tide on
diabetes,” said Vincent Mainella, the chain’s Vice President of Pharmacy in a statement.
