    both liked to make it sound like I was required to use Express Scripts Mail order service but, of course, apparently they can't require that. If your MD prescribes an antibiotic for an infection, having to wait a week to get the Rx filled does not make sense.

    Just as I support using local banks and credit unions; I also support local pharmacies. (I know Kroger is regional but the workers are union.) If you are using Express Scripts, or a service like it, when penned down they will admit that they cannot require you get your Rxs through their mail order pharmacy as opposed to a local pharmacy.

    Also, with my prescriptions the savings touted by ES and others  does not come from the mail order process but from getting a 3 month rather than a 1 month supply and, of course, using generics if your MD approves.
