Walgreens to Leave Anthem/Blue Cross Network

 

Walgreens, a pharmacy retailer, has announced its intent to exit the Express Scripts pharmacy provider network when its current contract expires on December 31, 2011.

What Does This Mean?

Unless an agreement is reached between Express Scripts and Walgreens, members will no longer be able to receive coverage for their prescription medications from Walgreens pharmacies, beginning January 1, 2012. 

 

Access to other retail pharmacies within the pharmacy provider network remains available. The Express Scripts pharmacy network contains more than 56,000 pharmacies without Walgreens. On average, there is another network pharmacy within one-half mile of a Walgreens pharmacy.

 

Walgreens and Express Scripts could reach an agreement by December 31, 2011 which would enable members to continue receiving coverage for their prescription medications from Walgreens pharmacies. However, based on our meetings with leaders from both Walgreen Co. and Express Scripts, we are not optimistic that an agreement will be reached.

 

Members can continue to receive coverage for their prescription medications from any Walgreens through December 31, 2011.  Read more
