Walgreens Prescription Savings

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Walgreens for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
SocialSpark and Walgreens has teamed up together and asked me to share with my readers about the Walgreens Prescription Savings Club.
Many of us are in love with the convenient 24 hour drive-thru Walgreens provides especially when the locations are close to our neighborhoods saving us on gas. I love to go to Walgreens for my prescriptions,I love their customer service as well.  Walgreens tried to negotiate with Express Scripts to come up with a new contract to continue as part of it's Pharmacy Provider Network but it didn't work out. As of January 1,2012 Walgreens is no longer part of Express Scripts Pharmacy Provider Network. Unfortunately this change includes all Walgreens Pharmacies nationwide and Duane Reade Pharmacies in the New York area. Express Scripts's actions are causing disruption with no significant benefit to patients or their health plan. This change has caused many pharmacy patients to go elsewhere to use their benefits who were covered by Walgreens and Express Script. Having to change pharmacies and driving further to another pharmacy can be such a burden and cause many to be upset.
  To find out if you are effected by this change, please check the back of your prescription insurance card.  If it says Express Scripts on there, you may ask your Walgreens pharmacist if you are directly effected and how they can help you through this change. 
Walgreens is trying to help by offering a special discount on annual membership for it's Walgreens Prescription Savings Club For $10 a year a family membership will cover everyone in your immediate family,spouse,dependents under 22 and pets. Individuals may join for only $5. Join and receive discounts on your prescriptions. The Walgreens Prescription Savings Club Membership offers you savings on over 8,000 brand name and generic medications. 
For more information on these changes you may visit Walgreens at http://www.walgreens.com/pharmacy/psc/psc_overview_page.jsp

I think it's great that Walgreen is trying to help since they had to make the change. Although I feel bad for those that have to switch. Thanks for passing the news (it doesn't effect me but I'm sure it did to a lot.)
