Support Walgreens To Be Part Of The Express Scripts Network
This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Walgreens for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
Walgreens used to be part of the Express Scripts network of pharmacies. This year, they are not anymore because their contract expired. While they have been incessantly been trying to renew the contract since last year, they have been unsuccessful.
And now, they need everybody's help.
If Walgreens will not be able to get back in Express Scripts' network, this means a lot of patients will be greatly affected. Why? Many patients under an Express Scripts plan have used Walgreens pharmacies for years and have a personal relationship with their Walgreens pharmacist.
The Prescription Savings Club at Walgreens gives patients a lot of perks and advantages hence why I think Express Scripts should accept Walgreens back into their network.
There is already a trust established between the pharmacist and the patient. Taking this away, patients have to start over and try to establish that trust connection again. And we all know trust takes time to be accepted.
While Walgreens is still negotiating to renew the contract, they have taken steps to minimize disruptions and inconvenience for patients who continue to use Walgreens when possible.
I for one do not like their predicament. Express Scripts should think it over and continue the Walgreens and Express Scripts relationship. If you feel upset about this situation, simply spread the word, contact your local media and voice your displeasure.
