Save More Money with Walgreens Prescription Savings Club

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

Healthcare is expensive and on the rise. Insurance providers have you jump through so many hoops in order to stay covered. Prescriptions are not any different. You might not have heard, but there has been a dispute between Walgreens and Express Script program for the last year. If you are part of the Express Scripts' pharmacy provider network , it means as of January 1, 2012, you can longer use Walgreens pharmacy to fill your prescriptions. This includes all Walgreens pharmacies nationwide and Duane Reade pharmacies in the New York City area. 

Now all Express Script patients will have to change their pharmacy. Walgreens has more 24 hour stores than any pharmacy in the country so you can get a prescription filled day or night which is great for emergencies. The worst part of this dispute is that the costs are not going down as a result. The Express Script program stated clients will not see costs drop by excluding Walgreens pharmacy from its network. It's quite possible that costs might go up as Walgreens offers competitive pricing on prescriptions.

In order to help many customers, Walgreens Prescription Savings Club is offering a special discount on annual membership for the month of January. For $10 a year, a family membership covers everyone in your immediate family, including a spouse, dependents 22 and younger and pets. Individuals may join for $5. Join and receive discount prices on your prescriptions.

Other great benefits included:

  • Savings on more than 8,000 brand-name and all generic medications
     
  • Discounts on flu shots, pet prescriptions, nebulizers and diabetic supplies
     
  • Bonuses when you purchase Walgreens brand products and photo services

This is a great savings to help ease the burden of higher costs. If you are not following Walgreens on Facebook or Walgreens on Twitter then you should start today. I already follow them on both and I am signed up for special emails for special discounts and coupons.

I love Walgreens and spend more time at our local one than I should. The pharmacists are amazing. My daughter takes a very expensive medication and the pharmacists have to argue with the insurance company every month. They do it without complaining all the time. They have also called me when there are problems and each one remembers me and my family so they know all of our medical idiosyncrasies.

It's ridiculous anyone should have to fight the insurance company for the medications you or your children need. We pay over $250 a month just for medical insurance for a family of 3! If we had more children, then we would pay more monthly. This does not include dental or vision. That's all separate. I was fortunate our insurance didn't go up this past year. They are constantly trying to change the rules on who you can't see or what medications are covered. Luckily all our prescriptions are generic.
