Just listening to Justin, discussing obtaining meds with Medco, now Express Script. They are the worst for getting meds. My doctors give them a year prescription for each med so I can just go online and get a renewal. This is my experience with them, they just cannot ship and delivery meds within a reasonable time. I have a med on order now and its been 3 weeks, and they just keep moving the ship date out a week. I get no phone call or even an email, have to go online to check the status of the med order. My Drs. hate dealing with them because I try to get a 14 day prescription with the local drug store and they deny it every time. Thus I end up being off meds until they can ship. They DO NOT care about a person health. If you don't use Medco I cannot use the co pay, they refuse. So I am stuck again right now, out of meds, and they do NOT care. It is just an online store, making big profits and not caring about the people they serve.
On one occasion my Dr. changed my meds because of Medco not shipping, there was a 5 weeks delay, no calls to me. It is really stressful dealing with them and the slow online messages between us. I advise NO ONE to use MEDCO or EXPRESS SCRIPT.
