The recent end-of-contract between Walgreens and Express Script has created disruptions among its loyal customers and plan holders. Walgreens is no longer part of the Express Scripts’ pharmacy provider. Because of this, many patients find themselves driving farther just to get prescriptions filled at pharmacies and are changing pharmacists. The disruption has caused too much inconvenience among the health plan holders and it threatens the valuable presence of the community pharmacies, which are the first point of entry for many people.
But people don’t have to fret because Walgreens is offering a special discount on annual membership for its Walgreens Prescription Savings Club. For just $10 a year, families can get coverage. Individuals can join too for only $5 and members can get discount prices on their prescriptions. With Walgreens, members can save on more than 8,000 brand-name and all generic medications. There are also discounts on flu shots, pet prescriptions, nebulizers and diabetic supplies.
Walgreens is always there for you, and receive updates by liking to the Walgreens on Facebook page and follow Walgreens on Twitter. So even with the current dispute, Walgreens is here to ease the burden. With all these offerings from Walgreens, customers can still enjoy lower health care costs and great savings.
