This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Walgreens. All opinions are 100% mine.
If you are like me and have an insurance plan that uses Express Scripts and get your prescriptions at Walgreens, you may know that negotiations between the two have failed and that anyone who had prescriptions at Walgreens is being forced to find a new pharmacy as of January 1, 2012. If you don’t, or want to read more information, here is a great press release about Walgreens and Express Script
Please note that not everyone with prescriptions at Walgreens will be impacted by this – only if your insurance plan prescriptions are managed by Express Scripts. Check with your pharmacist to find out for sure if you are impacted.
Walgreens are taking steps to help customers who use their pharmacy continue to use their pharmacies even after the agreement ends. In an effort to help ease the burden, Walgreens are offering a special discount on their Walgreens Prescription Savings Club. For $10 a year, a family membership covers everyone in your immediate family, including a spouse, dependents 22 and younger and pets. Individuals may join for $5. Join and receive discount prices on your prescriptions.
Other benefits include savings on more than 8,000 brand-name and generic medications. Discounts on flu shots, pet prescriptions, nebulizers and diabetic supplies. Bonuses are available when you purchase Walgrens brand products and photofinishing services.
I support Walgreens and am hoping that I can keep my prescriptions in their pharmacy! You can support them too by liking them on Twitter and Facebook.
