Now that's just wrong. You should send in a complaint to the corporate website. Believe me, they take this very seriously.

rebel chick god did not make er man did and man did it to make lots of money the problem being maybe this person does not have insurance or their insurance just sucks like mine.maybe they did not have 5 grand to pay a inflated er bill.the point being it is the job of the pharamacist to fill the perscrtions the doctor writes.maybe people should start sueing them if they have to go to the er because if the pharamacist causes them to be sick because they did not do their job and follow their oath they should be held accountable.sad thing is someone will have to die before that happens.

It is very unfair of Walgreens to refuse to give the specifics of what you failed on their assessment. My sister took their Pharmacy Tech assessment and they said she failed, but wouldn't tell her what she did wrong.

How do a person suppose to correct a problem, if they don't offer any positive feedback to help them attain employment?!.

My sister worked at CVS for 14 yrs and was pushed out due to racism/favoritism. She had no problem being friendly with customers, co-workers, entering, filling prescriptions, therefore why rely on an assessment to choose employees based on whether they pass an assessment, instead of hiring them to prove your assessment is unrealistic!!!!

I am always overcharged for items. I constantly have to correct the clerks about the prices. They price the stuff, so bill customers the price you advertise, not more. The employees are buffoons. Even the manager as she got defensive when I questioned the charges. ...

Walgreens - Cheating Customers

I picked up my prescription last night only to find that it cost $25 more. Walgreen's changed manufactures and didn't notify me of the change. My insurance will not cover the cost because I can get the drug elsewhere for less. When I got home the drug looked different, I was not notified of the change in color and thought I had the wrong drug. Walgreen's pharmacy lied to me and told me my insurance deductible had changed, and that was the reason for the increase. BCBS said it was simply the pharmacy's choice of manufacturer that increased the cost. It's nice that Walgreen's has started a campaign for free flu shots around the world...just too bad they are turning the cost around on their customers to pay for it.

They wanted to make a killing on you. Don't listen tot these *** that are saying that they do not know what other competitors sell the SAME DRUG for THEY DO!!

They have entire teams trying to get the most out of EACH DRUG YOU buy. If you have been getting all your MEDS through them what is the odds of you SHOPPING AROUND.

So believe me they know exactly what they are doing. They expect you to PAY WHATEVER HEY ASK FOR!!

I went to a Walgreens, one of the preferred pharmacies formy drug plan. My RX was for a drug that my insurance didn't cover. I was quoted $216 for a 30 day supply. I refused and went home to check prices on the web.

Costco sells the same drug with 30 day supply for $16.60.

When I returned and asked Walgreens why the big difference in price, the clerk snapped at me and said "well, if you can get it cheaper at Costco, then go there".

That was the last time I've been in a Walgreens.

Certain insurance plans have "preferred" pharmacies for you to use. Generally mail-order is the cheapest option, but some have varying retail prices depending on where you go.

That is something you would have to look at when you receive your packet describing your prescription coverage each year. Or you could contact your insurance and they would tell you. I don't know why you would expect pharmacists to know what the copays are for different insurance plans at different pharmacies.

The choice of manufacturer would have no impact on your insurance copay, so long as both are still generic formulations. The only way it would be more expensive is if you went from generic to brand formulation.

I have been getting the same generic drug for 10 years. I have the same insurance, with the same deductible, which I have not met, but had not met the last 3 times I picked up my med this year.

Per Walmart the drug cost has NOT gone up. BCBS says there is no reason I should have paid more for the drug than I have all year. Walgreens ripped me off...plain and simple. On top of that they lied and were extremely rude.

In fact they told me I could not get a quote from another pharmacy because that was fraud...ridiculous. They are taking advantage of people, and they know it.

Okay so I work at walgreens as a tech and find this post hard to believe. The pharmacists and managers are ***-bent on good customer service and quality work.

If there was a tech or a pharmacist stealing medication it would not go unnoticed. There are cameras all over the pharmacy and there are daily inventory counts of controlled substances. If numbers are off, the employees are questioned and the missing pills better be accounted for or say good bye to your job and your clean record. A lot of times patients will call us claiming to have been shorted either because a.) they themselves can't count or b.) they want extra pills.

One time a lady counted her sons ADHD pills at the counter (that's totally cool, do what you gotta do) and screamed in my face that she was shorted 5 capsules. I calmly walked to the filling station, grabbed a counting try and started counting them out loud in front of her and shockingly, she was not shorted.

This has happened so often that is offer to count every controlled substance out loud for the patient to avoid problems. It's just ridiculous how often this *** happens.
