MIAMI -- Walgreens announced Tuesday an expanded Prescription Savings Club offering discounts on 8,000 brand and generic medications, including some generics for as low as $1 a week for a 90-day supply.

A Walgreens spokesman said the program adds 300 "value-added" generics to the 400 already covered under the savings plan. It is aimed at the uninsured, which in Florida represent 22 percent of the population.

Customers wishing to participate in the Walgreens club must buy an annual membership -- $20 for an individual, $35 for a family. Several other chains also have drug discount programs.
