Express Scripts Inc No Longer In The Walgreens Business

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

I don't know about you, but I am on a first name basis with my local pharmacist. Not because I have to be, but because it just makes sense. My pharmacist is an integral part of my family's health care maintenance and management. I honestly don't know what I'd do if for some unforeseen circumstance I'd have to switch pharmacies and start fresh. For some folks across the country this has become an awful reality. As of December 31, 2011, Express Scripts Inc. decided that their contract with Walgreens Pharmacy would be no more. I personally do not use Walgreens Pharmacy, but I certainly feel for those that do. My own prescription plan is managed through Express Scripts Inc. which means to me, if I were a Walgreens customer I would be faced with the nightmare of finding a new pharmacy to deal with my families medications. Saying that I would not be a happy camper would be the understatement of the year.

After reading the reasons for which the agreement between Walgreens and Express Scripts were terminated, I have come to the conclusion that Express Scripts Inc. was simply being unreasonable. It seems as though Walgreens tried everything that they could to keep the contract as beneficial as possible for both Express Scripts and the customers. Unfortunately their attempts at forging a solid agreement were shot down. Now those customers affected by this decision must shop around for different pharmacies or be forced to use Express Scripts mail order service. In my opinion, I just don't think mail order prescriptions are a good for my family. Who would answer your questions? How would you know you have the right thing? The list of questions could go on and on. Another thing that really bugs me is that Express Scripts manages Tricare, the health insurance plan for the military. Why should our military personnel that use Walgreens have to shop around for a new pharmacy? Haven't they done enough?

In order to continue to offer their customers affected by this ordeal, Walgreens has decided to offer a substantial discount on the annual membership for their Prescription Savings Club at Walgreens. What does this mean to their customers? They can continue to use Walgreens Pharmacy while still enjoying the low cost prescriptions. This sounds to me like Walgreens is trying to keep their customers happy; a commendable effort.
