CVS Complaint - Overcharging For Prescription Medicine
NORCROSS, GEORGIA -- My son picked up a prescription for Mupirocin ointment at the local CVS pharmacy today. CVS charged us $44.59, which seemed very high to me.
So I searched the Internet for the exact same medicine--(it is a generic version, same size, same everything) via Google. Amazon.com sells Mupirocin with a published LIST price of $31.02 with Amazon's selling price was $28.20. CVS is selling the prescription drug at $13.57 over list price! Wow, what margins CVS must be making ... its an additional 30.4% ABOVE LIST PRICE.
No wonder CVS is losing market share to Walgreen's, Costco, and Walmart. I certainly don't like being overcharged. I won't go back to CVS for anything again.
