BENTONVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Bentonville-based Wal-Mart today began offering four-dollar generic prescription drugs in another 12 states, bringing to total to 27 states.

The move brings about one-thousand more stores under the program. The company charges $4 for a one-month supply of 314 different prescriptions. That number includes 143 drugs in a variety of dosages and solid or liquid forms.

Wal-Mart rolled out the program in Florida three weeks ago and last week added 14 states to the list. Arkansas was added to the program last week. The low-priced drugs are now available in 2,507 Wal-Mart, Sam's Club and Neighborhood Market stores.

States added Thursday were: Alabama, Georgia, Iowa, Kansas, Maryland, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, New Hampshire, Ohio, South Dakota and Virginia.

States already with the program were: Alaska, Arkansas, Arizona, Delaware, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Texas and Vermont.
