Both companies are working to keep Hazelwood customers in the loop and maintain good relations with the public.
Barring a last-minute agreement, the long-standing relationship between Walgreens and North St. Louis County-based Express Scripts will end on Jan. 1. The pharmacy benefit manager (PBM) has been battling with Walgreens over contract issues for months. The dispute became public in June when Walgreens said it could not comply with the terms of Express Scripts’ contract requirements. Express Scripts said in a release that it is “receiving strong support from clients and expects greater than 95% of its clients' prescription volume will move forward into 2012 without Walgreens as a network provider.” The company also said in October that it is working support Express Scripts clients and members as they transfer prescriptions away from Walgreens…
