And now the pharmacist will have to play the role of insurance representative while trying to immunize, answer 3 ringing phones, and the f$&"ing drive-thru. I can't wait for this fiasco to take shape.

They try to get into anything that has high profit and big potential. This will be another failure like their "financial services", offering western union, DHL delivery, etc. Of course it has potential, but only if the price is right. Which, like everything else they sell, will be more expensive than other providers. Bunch of nitwits and stooges.

The PSC card is doing well though, its helped my family members cut the cost of their medication in half (no joking there), we don't use it for anything else though, don't even take it out of the wallet when using it at the register for other things.

Maybe this idea will get lucky too?

I think its a great idea for people that don't have any health insurance. Maybe they will make it somewhat affordable.
I have a discount drug card that I use at my walgreens pharmacy. it saves me about $27 on a $50 script. Here is a link to the card if anyone needs it; http://www.medicationcoupons.com/card
