Walgreens Specialty Pharmacy Launches New HIV/AIDS Web Site

DEERFIELD, Ill., April 10, 2008 –Walgreens (NYSE, NASDAQ:WAG) announced today that Walgreens Specialty Pharmacy has launched a new HIV-focused Web site, HIV.Walgreens.com, to expand the availability of HIV/AIDS information to patients and caregivers.

It gives patients the opportunity to get expert advice from an HIV-trained pharmacist in the comfort and privacy of their homes and provides information about HIV/AIDS, including signs, symptoms, treatment and medication management.

We want to do all we can to help educate, support and provide needed therapies to these patients.”

Hmmm.  I guess this is like what I go to, except mine is run by CVS but goes by the name Pharmacare, and is an HIV specialty pharmacy.

Of course Walgreens would do this.  It makes perfect sense for my health insurance to inform me that I've got go through CVS Mailorder rather than Walgreens.  Never mind that I've always like the convenience of being able to go to any location on the planet and have my prescriptions filled.

Nothing against CVS.   So far they've been good.  I just don't like the fact that my insurance carrier decides where and how I get my meds.  I hate FINE PRINT.
