I wanted to let everyone know about a terrible experience I had at Walgreens last night. I am on Medicaid. I'm not embarassed for you guys to know that because we all understand each other's problems. However, when the pharmacist announces it to the entire group of people in line and working at the pharmacy, I became a little embarassed. Medicaid previously paid for me to take two Lexapro each day but recently changed to only approving one. My doc had to write a letter and I was told it should only take a few days to clear up the problem. Walgreens left a message that my scrip was ready so I went in to get it. When I got there, they wanted to charge me $160. I finally asked the pharmacist if I could fill it for one a day because I was out and I didn't think I should stop cold turkey. She told me it was an extra step now and then later it would be an extra step for them to refill early. I asked her to please do that because I needed the med. She was obviously irritated and as loud as she could, she said that Public Aid changes policies all the time and that ...... I don't even know what the rest of the sentence was because I was so devistated that she would announce that so loudly to everyone. Normally, they just say "your insurance" or "your medication" to protect our privacy. I KNOW she did this just to try to embarass me. I've contacted the home office and am transferring all prescriptions to CVS but the damage is done and I've been crying for two days because I am so upset that someone who is supposed to be a professional would intentionally try to hurt me. Don't we have enough problems? Anyone want to join me in boycotting this company?
