I do not understand why Express Scripts rejected the good intention of Walgreens. Express Scripts provide a wide range of services to its clients and that includes the negotiation of discounts from drugstores. Walgreens wanted to hold rates for a new contract flat but, Express Scripts rejected the negotiations. In fact, they slashed Walgreens reimbursement rates below the industry's average cost.
Walgreens wanted to offer more savings for their customers who are covered by Express Scripts program but then again, all good intentions were rejected. Because of this rejection, my friend had to transfer her prescriptions to a new pharmacy with affordable price. The adjustment is a hassle and very inconvenient. She will have to pick up her prescriptions according to the office hours of the new pharmacy. Walgreens offer a 24-hour service with drive-thru pharmacies, other's do not have that.
