DIAGNOSTEK, INC. SIGNS PRESCRIPTION DRUG AGREEMENT WITH AFLAC

 ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., Oct. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Diagnostek, Inc. (NYSE: DXK) announced today that it has signed an agreement to offer integrated prescription drug benefits to the more than ten million individuals insured by AFLAC (American Family Life Assurance Company of Columbus). AFLAC, headquartered in Columbus, Ga., is one of the world's leaders in private supplemental insurance, with its major operations in the U.S. and Japan. AFLAC's 1992 revenues were $4 billion.
 Under terms of the agreement, Diagnostek now extends its point of service prescription drug program, RxChoice, to AFLAC's U.S. policyholders. AFLAC's sales force, approximately 25,000 individuals nationwide, will offer RxChoice to individual policyholders, who pay an annual membership fee to fill their prescriptions at RxChoice's national preferred retail pharmacy network or through state-of-the-art mail service pharmacies managed by Diagnostek.
 Individual policyholders enrolled in RxChoice pay below average wholesale prices for their prescriptions and benefit from proven clinical pharmacy programs to enhance quality of care.
 "Working with AFLAC gives Diagnostek the opportunity to aggressively enter the individual prescription drug market," said Duke Rodriguez, Diagnostek's chief operating officer. "AFLAC gives us access to more than ten million people looking for a cost-effective, convenient way to fill their prescriptions. RxChoice answers this need."
 Diagnostek manages prescription drug benefits for Fortune 500 corporations, HMOs, PPOs and national labor unions. In addition, Diagnostek provides pharmacy management services to more than 212 acute- care hospitals and HMOs nationwide.
