The next time you get your prescription filled at Walgreens, you may also be able to sign up for health insurance.

Walgreens is planning to start selling health insurance this fall.

The drugstore will reportedly sell policies with different price ranges and coverage levels through a private health insurance exchange.

Walgreens isn't commenting officially yet, but a spokesman says the company is "looking at a number of options in light of healthcare reform."

The new health care law mandates that federal and state-funded public exchanges be established by 2014.
