For the past year Walgreens has been negotiating with Express Scripts for a new contract to continue as part of its pharmacy provider network. The contract expired at the end of December 2011 because the negotiations were unsuccessful. Patients covered by an Express Scripts plan now find themselves not only having to change pharmacies, but also many of them have to drive further to pharmacies that have less convenient hours with makes it even more difficult for working families. Walgreens offers more 24 hour and drive-through pharmacies than any other pharmacy in the country. During negotiations, Walgreens did not seek an increase in rates. Walgreens and Express Script
Customers may see their costs go up as Walgreens offers competitive pricing and additional savings by dispensing less expensive generic alternatives and savings through 90-day supplies of medications at their pharmacies vs. three 30-day refills.
Many patients under an Express Scripts plan have been using Walgreens for years and have developed personal relationships with the pharmacists. Walgreens is doing all they can to assist customers with this transition. One of the steps Walgreens is taking to minimize the disruption is to offer a special discount on annual membership for its Prescription Savings Club. An individual can join during this JANUARY PROMOTION for only $5.00 and a family can join for $10.00 and save on more than 8,000 brand name and all generic medications. The regular annual membership is $20 for an individual and $35.00 for a family.
