I have used Walgreens for about 2 years and have never had a complaint before now. The past year a medication I was presribed was not covered by my insurance. I was at first paying $98 dollars a month for this medication and then they increased it to $103. I did not know any better, so I continued to pay that price. Then after talking to my doctor about the high price I was paying, he was outraged. He informed me that I should not be paying more then $4 for a month supply. So I decided to call around and EVERY pharmacy in our town charges the $4 price except Walgreens. This is just outragous!! How do they get away with stealing their customers money??

Wow! Great detective work on your part. I'm sure others will benefit because you took the time to look into the matter.

yea walgreens suck. my son was sick and i had took him to the er and it was late no one else was open and needed his meds that night. so i had to go to them. one of the meds my insurance did not cover and i heard the woman talkin but did not know it was about me she said well her insurance won't pay for this and i know she won't pay for it so i'm gonna cancel it. then she asked who i was waitin on and i told her she was like oh, well ur insurance won't cover this medicine i figured u didn't want it. she said it's 70 dollars i said i don't care if it's 170 dollars my kid is sick duh!!! yea i want it then she said oh we don't have it we can order it and it will be in, in a couple of days. i said u know what i will wait and go some where else and i did and i got the medicine way cheaper some where else. they need to fire all those ppl back there and start all over!!!

I had the same problem with them. I now take my business to C & C Pharmacy off of Parr Ave. I was paying $34 a month for a RX my insurance didn't cover at Walgreens now at C & C I only pay $8. Big diff. not as big as $103 down to $4 but that just proves Walgreens is in business go rip off people PERIOD.

I use to use wallgreens all the time until I went to belew and ray and their prices were cheaper. Then when c&c opened up I started going there. I've got blood pressure and cholesterol meds that my insurance won't cover unless I use cvs. It was only 5 dollars at c&c. When I would go to walgreens they always acted like it was killing them to fill your perscription, espically the girls that work the counter. Then they make u wait 45 min. I've never been to pharmacy that took 45 min to fill one thing. At c&c I'm in and out in about 10 min

if the medication is on the 4$ list, then Walgreens should be reported. That's illegal to do and you doctor knew it, that's why he was so upset. You will have to check around but I know that there is some prescription drug price abuse line out there somewhere. Good luck

We had same problem when they first opened we had to get my husbands meds filled there, and they ask if he wanted to sign up for a discount card and we said yes. Then we got his meds filled and they charged us 123.00 for his meds anyway, well about two months later we got a 73 dollar check in the mail, they said they overcharged us. But the last time we went in they told us it was going to cost 79.00 for his meds and I ask if we could get half filled now and get the rest in a few days? The man told me we could get half filled but, that made no sense to me sop I went in to talk to them and the girl at the register said, she had applied his "discount" to it and the entire script was only 17.00 now so I feel bad for anyone who uses this pharmacy. They screw you and don't even kiss you.

USA Drugs has bought out Belew & Ray, and USA Drugs is owned by Walgreens. Store is gonna be remodeled on the inside to make it look just like the other Walgreens.
