Mama Nibbles: Walgreens Helps Save you Money on Prescriptions

Walgreens Helps Save you Money on Prescriptions

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Walgreens for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
     We have some regular prescriptions that we have to get each month and we normally like to use Walgreens because there are so many 24 hour locations available and with our busy lives we never know when we will be able to pick up our meds.  I like being able to go even at 2 am to pick up and there is always a Wags close to my home or anywhere I happen to be.
      For these reasons I've recently become interested in what has been happening between Walgreens and Express Script.  As of December 31 2011 the contract with Express Scripts expired which means Walgreens nationwide are no longer a part of their pharmacy provider network.  Because negotiations with Express Scripts have been unsuccessful now Walgreens pharmacy patients are being forced to go elsewhere to fill their prescriptions to places that are not always 24/7 or nearby.  As you can imagine customers are not happy with this change, prices are not going down at all for this added hassle.  If you don't know what Express Scripts is, they provide a range of pharmacy benefit management services in North America. The company was founded in 1986 and is headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri.
     Walgreens is putting forth great efforts to help ease this burden.  They are offering a special discount on annual membership for its 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.   Only certain patients that were using Express Scripts are impacted.  It's best to contact your local Walgreens or on your insurance card to find out if you have been affected.
Other benefits include:
Savings on more than 8,000 brand-name and all generic medications
Discounts on flu shots, pet prescriptions, nebulizers and diabetic supplies
Bonuses when you purchase Walgreens brand products and photo finishing services
