Are You Affected By Express Scripts Program?


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

Effective January 1, 2012, Express Scripts is no longer a part of Walgreens' pharmacy provider despite negotiations made by Walgreens to have a new contract. Due to these changes, a lot of pharmacy patients covered by an Express Script plan are left with no choice but to go elsewhere, change their pharmacist or deal with less convenient hours to get their prescriptions filled.

A lot of people do not like these changes at all, people who have loved and got used to Walgreens pharmacy that has been taking care of them for years, just like me. I have been using Walgreens pharmacy since I was single and now my whole family does. Luckily, I am not one of those affected by these changes between Walgreens and Express Script.

So here is what Walgreens is doing for its customers affected by the disruption. They are offering a special discount on the annual membership of  Walgreens Prescription Savings ClubWalgreens Prescription Savings Club. An individual can join for only $5 this January special promotion or $10 for a family membership. What are the benefits of joining? You can get savings on more than 8,000 brand name and all generic medications, more than 400 generics are available with a three-month supply for less than a dollar a week. The regular annual membership is $20 and $35 for individual and family. Other benefits included by joining the Walgreens Prescription Savings Club are discounts on flu shots, nebulizers and diabetic supplies plus bonuses when you purchase Walgreens brand products and photo finishing services.

I have loved Walgreens through the years. If you feel the same way, show your support and get updates by liking Walgreens on Facebook or following Walgreens on Twitter. I just did.
