RetireSafe Urges Express Scripts to Resume Contract Negotiations with Walgreens
Date:1/6/2012

as been committed to underserved communities. Today, there are nearly 8,000 stores nationwide that serve 40 million consumers every week and are within walking distance of almost two-thirds of all Americans. This kind of access is critical to retirees and seniors, who rely heavily on their trusted community pharmacist for their daily health.

"Access to quality health care should not be a worry that Americans are forced to face as they grow older. Nor should seniors be denied the freedom to make their own choices when it comes to their personal health care decisions," Phillips continued.  "We urge Express Scripts to keep the interests of older Americans in mind as you proceed, just as we will keep your actions in front of the men and women we represent across the nation," Phillips concluded.

(Express Scripts, Inc. is a pharmacy benefit management (PBM) company that administers pharmacy services for health insurance plans and programs.  If a consumer's prescription drug benefits are managed, through their health insurance, by Express Scripts, that consumer may only obtain medications at pharmacies with which Express Scripts has contracts in place.  Despite Walgreens' best efforts to negotiate throughout the course of 2011, Express Scripts has been unwilling to come to fair and reasonable terms with Walgreens on a contract renewal agreement and as of January 1 has stopped covering prescriptions filled at Walgreens.)

RetireSafe is a nonprofit, nonpartisan grassroots senior advocacy organization based in Washington, DC.
