Did you know...

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Walgreens for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

    If you are a member of a Express Scripts insurance plan your prescription coverage may be impacted!

    For the past year trusted pharmacy Walgreens has been in negotiation with Express Scripts for a new contract. The negotiations were unsuccessful and the contract expired on December 31st. As a result Walgreens is no longer a pharmacy provider for Express Scripts.

    The impact of the decision made by Express Scripts has been rather inconvenient. Patients have been forced to leave their comfort zone. Many patients whom have built personal trusting relationships with their pharmacists are seeking plan approved coverage elsewhere. Changing pharmacies. Losing the trust and the convenience of 24 hour access. Not to mention cost has not been spared this is a no win situation.

    Patients are left feeling frustrated.  Walgreens and Express Script

    Not only does this affect the patient but the community as well. Express Scripts would like to use it's own mail order pharmacy instead of our community pharmacy's. What then happens when you need your prescription as you leave the doctors office or need emergency pain medication?

    Walgreens is taking steps to ease this transition for its valued patients by offering a special discount on annual membership for it's Prescription Savings Club.  Walgreens Prescription Savings Club  Just a few of the other benefits include discounts on flu shots, pet prescriptions, plus bonuses when you purchase Walgreen brand products.

   Remember only certain prescription plans managed by Express Scripts have been affected. It is best to check with your pharmacist to decide if you have been imp by these changes.
