Walgreens and Express Scripts have been trying to negotiate their contract for the past year,. But on December 31st, the contract expired with no renewal, and both companies will no longer work with each other.
Now what does this mean for current Walgreens prescription customers including myself?
Walgreens will still continue to offer customers their competitive pricing, discounts with generic drugs, and bigger discounts for 90 day supplies of medication, instead of three 30 day supplies.
They are offering special savings on their Prescription Savings Club at Walgreens for the month of January. Individuals can get the savings plan for $5, and families can get the plan for only $10! This savings plan gives discounts on more then 8000 different drugs and can help people on long term meds pay as little as $1 a week for 30+ day supplies.
Walgreens wants to let all it’s customers know that they no longer will work with a middle man, and that they care about their communities. Walgreens is a great place to get prescriptions filled, especially in emergency situations. I know from personal experience that when you just get out of the hospital and need pain killers late at night, Walgreens is always near by.
They are also a great place to get your annual flu shot. And getting to the doctors office just doesn’t work. But Walgreens, you head in and within 15 minutes you have your shot!
