Walgreen's is advertising that they will give you $25 per new prescription that you transfer to them.
Switched 6 from CVS to Walgreens .... with the expectation of 6 $25 Walgreen cards as clearly stated in their ad. Small print says that people on Medicare, Medicaid or a federal program cannot qualify.
WELL .... I have Blue Cross Blue Shield of RI. This is NOT a government program! HOWEVER, Walgreen's says it falls within the restrictions. HOW?!?!? .... if Blue Cross Blue Shield falls within this program, then MOST PLANS will!!!!
Walgreen's will not tell you this until AFTER you transfer prescriptions and go to the make payment. Only at that time will they tell you that your insurance plan makes you ineligible!! Even the Pharmacist and Store Manager says this is not right and are getting a substantial number of complaints!!
Walgreen's expected me to just walk away with the prescription's that I had just ordered ... but NO WAY .... I cancelled order and walked out vowing never to return!!!
Only problem is now I have to go back to CVS and start prescription up again which I am sure will be a hassle with insurance. WALGREENS should no better!
Classic BAIT AND SWTICH by Walgreens .... involving life and death medication that their customers need ... do you have no Conscience or you just another greedy big corporation with no sense of integrity or fairness??? I would have to say the latter!!
