The move follows similar announcements from Walmart and Walgreen Co., among others, as reports said some of the newly insured under the Affordable Care Act may not have proof of insurance.

"Every January, our pharmacists and technicians help customers navigate through new plan transitions. It is part of our commitment to the health and wellness of the communities we serve," said Lincoln Lutz, Kroger's vice president of pharmacy, in a statement. "Our pharmacists are once again available to answer questions and provide information about the new insurance plans."
