Yes they will. I can't wait to see if I will still have a job or they just going to do without Tech's. I think I might try to get a job with waste managment.

No offense if PBMs ie express scripts continue to pay less and less for community pharmacies to provide prescriptions to you just because they want to fill it by mail then yes good bye! Fill your scripts thru the mail!
But don't call me when you need immediate attention or you need you script filled right away. Don't come in and ask me advise on what you need to use for a common cold so you can go to work. Don't call me to fill your 5 day script cause express scripts did nit get your drugs to you on time or they give you a bull crap story how they sent it and don't know why you did not get it and they'll be happy to give you a 5 day supply while thru correct the situation and turn around a fill the script to begin with. Don't call me when you need a regular OTC to treat your common ailment! Call express scripts let them answer your questions. If you want medical care by mail go ahead don't get me involved deal with them directly!
I understand a mistake was made in regard to your scripts and I apologize on behalf of the pharmacist or pharmacy that filled your script but guess what we are all human beings we are not perfect mistakes will be made. Everyone makes mistakes EVERYONE LITERALLY.
What really kills you is the mistake no one knows happens! At least you able to deal with a pharmacy where a mistake was made and you are aware of it. Where else will you get that transparency. Defiantly not in the ER, you asleep! Not in the dr office you have no clue what you told to use until your given a piece of paper for a script!
However when you get to the pharmacy you have a chance to second guess someone, where else do you get that no where else.
Please stop the complaining if you know what good for you then make an informed decision get your care through the mailbox.
