AARP Walgreens Complaint - Prescription Discount Program
AARP members beware that the drug prices listed on the AARP Walgreens internet site may not match what you are charged when you pick up your prescription at a participating pharmacy or through mail order.
I had had previous problems getting my drug prescription filled for the price indicated on the AARP Walgreen's pharmacy discount program website. When I went to my local Walgreen's I was told that my prescription would cost over $65, not $4.10 as listed on the AARP Walgreen's website.
However, my experience today tops the cake! My husband went to Costco, a participating pharmacy in the program. My prescription was not going to cost over $27 not $4.10 as listed today on their website. I called the AARP Walgreen's prescription discount program Customer Service number and they told me that their website listed the wrong amount for the drug price and that the $27 was correct but that they would refer the matter to their internal technical department.
Furthermore the listed price for the medication through their mail order program would not be the $1.32 as listed but would instead cost over $130!!!!!! I pointed out that this price would be even more than picking up the prescription at a local pharmacy and they said that was just how it was. They also intimated that I should have known the prices listed on their website were wrong because they were too cheap! (One is supposed to know intuitively that their website is not accurate).
So beware fellow AARP members when using this service, you may be in for an unpleasant surprise.
