You may have heard that Walgreens was unable to successfully negotiate a contract with Express Script this past year. As a result, Walgreens and Express Script are no longer working together. For those customers who relied on the prescription plan to afford their medications, they have been forced to change pharmacies. A popular client, Tricare, which provides health care services to military families, has been affected by this because Express Script has been unwilling to negotiate a contract to service Tricare families. To me, this is just unacceptable! Because Walgreens are widely available, this has obviously upset their customers.
Walgreens deeply regrets the inconvenience that this has caused their treasured customers and has developed the Walgreens Prescription Savings Club as a way to allow their customers to stay with their trusted pharmacy while still saving money on medications. The program costs just $10 a year for families (which includes not only your spouse and children 22 and younger but also your pets!) or just $5 a year for an individual membership. By joining, you are able to receive discounts on more than 8,000 medications, discounts on flu shots, pet prescriptions, nebulizers, and diabetic supplies. Plus, you can earn bonuses when you purchase Walgreens brand products and photo services.
If you have been affected by the dissolution of the Walgreens and Express Script relationship, then I encourage you to check out the Walgreens Prescription Savings Club. You can find out more and show your support of Walgreens by following Walgreens on Twitter and/or liking Walgreens on Facebook .
