Network: Walgreens to Leave Express Scripts Network January 1, 2012

Nov 08, 2011

In October, Anthem Blue Cross shared information about contract talks between Express Scripts, the company that manages the drug store network for Anthem Blue Cross, and Walgreens.  Anthem Blue Cross is sharing the latest information so you have the most current news affecting your clients.

Despite ongoing talks, it appears the two parties will no't reach an agreement before the end of the year. Absent a last minute agreement, Walgreens will leave the network on January 1, 2012.

Anthem Blue Cross will send one more mailing to employers by email and to members that have used Walgreens within the last 90 days. This mailing urges members to take action to move their prescriptions to another in-network pharmacy before December 31, 2011.
