Does Walgreens pay more than CVS?

SUPER EASY **SUPER EASY** deals for little money – WALGREENS 5

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recorded 182,874 wasted doses at the end of March, three months into the nation’s effort to vaccinate masses against the coronavirus. Of these, CVS was responsible for nearly half and Walgreens for 21%, or nearly 128,500 wasted doses between the two chains.

CDC data suggest that these companies have wasted more doses than states, U.S. territories and federal agencies combined. Pfizer’s vaccine, which in December was the first to be deployed and initially required storage at ultra-cold temperatures, accounted for nearly 60% of these doses.

Among other things, tracking wasted doses helps identify bottlenecks where distribution adjustments might be needed, emphasized Bruce Y., PhD. Lee, professor of health policy and management at the City University of New York. Because the federal government is footing the bill for the nation’s doses, any waste amounts to “basically throwing [taxpayer] money away,” he said.

Because the federal government is paying for the doses, “any waste is tantamount to throwing taxpayer money down the ramp,” he said. CVS, Walgreens and other retailers don’t pay for the vaccine. The government provides it. And under the Medicare program, it pays providers about $40 for each dose administered.

Taken alone, these two drugs, clarithromycin and simvastatin, are relatively safe. But when taken together they can cause a muscle tissue disorder and lead to kidney failure and death.

When the journalist wanted the prescriptions filled, the pharmacist should have warned him about the dangers. But that was not what happened. Within minutes the two drugs were packaged, labeled and sold, without a word of warning.

The same thing happened when the peirodist presented prescriptions for a pair of different but potentially deadly drugs at a Walgreens on Magnificent Mile. And at the Wal-Mart in Evergreen Park, the Jewel-Osco in River Forest and the Kmart in Springfield.

In the largest and most comprehensive study of its kind, the Tribune tested 225 pharmacies to see how often pharmacies dispense two dangerous drugs without warning patients.
