Sometimes customers are put in a tough situation, and finding the best solution is not always easy. This is where many Walgreens customers find themselves with the Express Scripts program right now. Express Scripts program acts as an intermediary between the pharmacy and providing health care service for employers and health plans who pay for medications. Walgreens and Express Script has tried to negotiate a new contract, but no deal could be reached. This means as of Jan 1, 2012 Walgreens no longer was a part of the Express Scripts pharmacy provider network. This has displaced many patients whom now must find another provider if they are part of the Express Scripts program.
This changed has affected many Walgreens customers and they are scrambling to figure out what to do. Many people are being forced to travel longer distances now to get their prescriptions filled. Others are losing a pharmacist that they have known for many years. Even the American Military could be put in the middle of Express Scripts changes and Walgreens tried to work out a deal with Express Scripts, but it was rejected.
With all the changes, Walgreens has stepped forward to help Express Scripts program customers. They have introduced the Walgreens Prescription Savings Club at a special discount on an annual membership. For $10 a year, a family membership covers everyone in your immediate family, including spouse and dependents 22 and younger. If you are an individual, it will only cost you $5.00. By joining today, you can get it at a great price and get discount prices on prescriptions. Discounts on flu shots, pet prescriptions, and other medications as well are some benefits you will enjoy.
