Walgreens regrettably has announced that as of January 1, 2012, customers of the Express Script pharmacy network will no longer be able to use Walgreens as their pharmacy of choice due to an agreement not being met on both sides to continue coverage. While Walgreens and Express Script in the end chose to continue on in different directions, please note that only some customers on the Express Scripts plan will be affected and it is best to discuss these changes and how they may affect you with your local Walgreens pharmacist.
While Walgreens understands that this may cause a hardship for those under this coverage that have been loyal Walgreens pharmacy customers, as well as now the distance some may have to drive to find a pharmacy that does fall into this coverage category, Walgreens would like to extend a special savings offer to join the Walgreens Prescription Savings Club.
During their special January promotion, Walgreens is offering a deal for individuals to join this savings club for the cost of $5, or $10 for a family membership. Walgreens Prescription Savings Club members will receive savings on over 8,000 brand name and generic prescription drugs. You will also receive discounts on flu shots, pet prescriptions, nebulizers, and diabetic supplies.
