In 2012 the battle for the consumers health care dollar continues to grow. This is evident by the expansion of pharmacies like Walgreens to be where there customers are and provide a service that will enable to have a one stop shop for their health care needs. All pharmacies deal with most major insurers and pharmacy benefit plans in order to help their customers get the medicines prescribed by their local HCP’s. Currently Walgreens and Express Scripts are in a a disagreement about their current contract. This only impacts the patient in the end that has developed a relationship with their local pharmacist and now be forced to find another pharmacy if an agreement cannot be reached. Walgreens has been trying to do everything they can to help their customers in light of this situation like offering a special Prescription Savings Club at Walgreens now through the end of January for those customers impacted.
If you are a Walgreens customer and have Express Scripts as your pharmacy benefit manager then you can help voice your opinion by following Walgreens on Facebook and Walgreens on Twitter. This situation also impacts those customers who are on Tricare which is the prescription plan and health plan for those in the military both active and retired. Voice your opinion and do not let your choices be limited by a need to increase profits.
