This post brought to you by Walgreens. All opinions are 100% mine.
This is an unusual post for my blog, but it’s my first lead on Social Spark. So, I thought I would take it! The change in Walgreens no longer accepting Express Scripts does somewhat affect me. Even though I don’t use Walgreen exclusively, there is one very near our house, and I’ve used it on occasion.
Walgreens will no longer be accepting Express Scripts as a provider in their pharmacy. If you want to know more about Walgreens and Express Script, you can follow the link. It is affecting customers who have Express Scripts as their pharmacy provider via their insurance.
To compensate, Walgreens is beginning a special discount through a Walgreens Prescription Savings Club. You can join for $10 a year, and receive discounts on your prescriptions. Express Scripts offers a mail order prescription service, so I think they are probably trying to promote that by moving away from Walgreens, a major pharmacy change.
Walgreens is trying to get the word out, and are using many media outlets to do so. For example, you can follow Walgreens on Twitter or follow Walgreens on Facebook to stay up to date on the latest changes. Walgreens has a lot of customers across the country, so I think this change is going to affect a lot of people.
I think it’s important to stay informed about these issues sometimes. I am not always on the up and up with my insurance, and I should be. Here, Walgreens and Express Script, you can find more information.
