Express Scripts (Pacific Source’s current pharmacy benefits manager) and Walgreens have reached an agreement to reestablish their relationship. As a result, Walgreens will be an in-network retail pharmacy for our all of our Medicare Advantage plans as of September 15, 2012.
Below are some FAQ’s

To find all participating pharmacies near you, log in to our website and use the “Find a Pharmacy” feature. Starting September your search results will include all the newly added Walgreens pharmacies as well.
