Hi all! I have some very interesting and important information for you. It is in regards to Walgreens and Express Script. Maybe you have heard about what has happened or maybe you are like me and just learning about this.
But I was just reading the press release on this and it has some very useful information for everyone in this situation. Basically Walgreens had negotiated with Express Scripts for the past year. But as of December 31, the contract expired. And January 1, Walgreens is no longer part of the Express Scripts Pharmacy providers.
As you can imagine this has left Walgreens customers feeling upset. This was unnecessary by Express Scripts, but now Walgreens customers, are having to go elsewhere because they can't fill them at Walgreens if they use Express Scripts. This will be a hassle for these customers to find a pharmacy that is less convenient and further away then the Walgreens they were using.
Walgreens is helping to ease the burden to these customers. They are offering a significant discount in the Walgreens Prescription Savings Club. For $10 a year you can get a family membership. This includes you, spouse, and dependents 22 years and younger - even your pets! Individuals can also join for $5. You will receive discount prices on your prescriptions.
