Calling all Walgreens prescription fillers and user! Have you heard of Walgreens and Express Script dispute? Patients that were covered by Express Script can no longer get their medication at Walgreens. Their contract ended on December 31, 20111 with no plans to re-new. Now, Walgreens is doing everything they can to get a new contract while trying to their customers.
Customers are being affected in many ways by this. They are having to drive longer distances to get their medications. In some cases the pharmacies having very limited hours unlike most Walgreens that are open 24 hours. This is creating a huge problem for loyal Walgreens customers.
