Express Scripts vs. Walgreens -- America's Choice

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Walgreens for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

If there is a bright center to the universe, then Express Scripts exists (spiritually) on the planet farthest from that center.

At least, that's what I feel about Express Scripts now after reading this statement on their heinous activities towards innocent customers at this link: 

Walgreens and Express Scripts

To summarize, Express Script is a company that acts as sort of a middleman between pharmaceutical companies and pharmacies. In January of 2012, Express scripts made the decision to exclude Walgreens from their network, effectively ending Walgreens ability to provide drugs to millions of paying customers. If this wasn't evil enough in itself, the worst part is the people who are most affected: the elderly and veterans. Instead of having the convenience of going to their local pharmacies to have prescriptions filled by pharmacists they know and trust, thousands of elderly folks have been forced to interrupt their extremely hectic lives and sometimes drive minutes or hours out of the way -- often to seedy parts of town -- in an effort to fill their prescriptions for life saving drugs to stave of diseases like diabetes and dementia. These customers are angry, and I don't blame them.

While Walgreens can only do so much to help these folks in situations like this, they are helping. One of the things that Walgreens has done is to start a new program, the details of which can be found here: Prescription Savings Club at Walgreens.  For just 10$ per year for families (5$ per year for individuals), customers can join an ever expanding group of users to ensure that their prescription supply comes at a deep discount. Membership in this club includes deep discounts on over 8,000 types of  drugs, discount flu shots and diabetic supplies, and reduced film processing.
