Support for Walgreens.....

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

Negotiations by  Walgreens and Express Scripts  have fallen through and they will no long work together.  Walgreens is no longer part of Express Scripts’ pharmacy provider network as of Jan. 1, 2012. Express Scripts acts as a middleman between pharmacies.  Most payers don’t see the rates Express Scripts pays to Walgreens. They only know what they pay Express Scripts. When they do see what Walgreens is paid, many health plans and employers are making decisions to continue to ensure access to Walgreens because they find the prices to be competitive and believe that they can lower overall health care costs.

An individual can join the  Prescription Savings Club at Walgreens  during a special January promotion for only $5, or $10 for a family membership, and receive savings on more than 8,000 brand name and all generic medications. Walgreens did this in an effort to prevent our country’s military personnel from being caught in the middle.

Walgreens also offered to contract separately with Express Scripts for Tricare from other Express Scripts commercial business, but these offers were rejected. This company wants you to use their own mail order pharmacy business instead of your community pharmacy.  Community pharmacies are a valuable presence in your neighborhood.  You can give support to  Walgreens on Facebook   as well as  Walgreens on Twitter   because of the magnitude confusion  this situation has caused.  What better was to stay updated than to check this out on these two networks.
