When hubby started to look for a pharmacy, where he can get his prescription Walgreens came out as the best pharmacy in town. Prescription Savings Club at Walgreens is one reason why we choose Walgreens. To save a penny or a quarter is already a saving. The other reason is their prescription cost can compete with other pharmacy. The other reason Walgreen is closer to our house I do not have to drive far and with the cost of fuel now it is hard to drive all the time. The sad news is Express Scripts Inc has decided that Walgreens will no longer be in its network. This news upset many customers. We are affected as well as some people that I know who are a die hard customers of Walgreens. We do not know what pharmacy we will transfer the prescription of hubby but for now it is upsetting and discouraging for the fact that we are used to go to Walgreens. Please read the press release here Walgreens and Express Scripts .

I Heart Walgreens
It is not only us customers who will be affected by what Express Scripts did. The troops are affected too. Walgreens wants to help support and serve our troops but Express Scripts is standing the way. You see Express Scripts clients are Tricare, which is the health and prescription drug program for America’s military service men and women. During negotiations, Walgreens took the unprecedented step of offering Express Scripts an ironclad guarantee that Walgreens prices would match or beat the average costs per adjusted prescription of all other pharmacies in the Tricare network. However, Walgreens effort and offers were rejected. Of course, the military will be affected in so many ways. Please read the link here Walgreens and Express Scripts.
For us avid customers of Walgreens we can voice out our dissatisfaction by contacting our local media. We can talk to our family; friends and we can write it in our blog. One thing we can show our support to Walgreens is by liking them here Walgreens on Twitter and Walgreens on Facebook. By this effort, we will know the latest news and we have chances to write in their wall to ask question and be updated at all time. See you there!
