EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 4, 2012--
SUPERVALU® (NYSE: SVU) today announced that the company’s 800
pharmacies across the country welcome patients with Express Scripts
prescription coverage. This coverage is no longer accepted by one of the
country’s largest pharmacy retailers.
SUPERVALU Pharmacies operate in 25 states under 10 retail brands,
including Acme Sav-on Pharmacy, Albertsons Sav-on Pharmacy,
Albertsons Osco Pharmacy, Cub Pharmacy, Farm Fresh Pharmacy, Jewel-Osco
Pharmacy, Shaw’s Osco Pharmacy, Shop ‘n Save Pharmacy, Shop ‘n Save Osco
Pharmacy and Shoppers Pharmacy.
“Express Scripts patients may be concerned that they no longer have a
pharmacy to fill their prescriptions,” said Chris Dimos, SUPERVALU
president, pharmacy operations. “We want these patients to know that we
welcome the opportunity to serve them and, with 800 locations across the
country, SUPERVALU Pharmacies have the resources to meet their needs.”
It is recommended that Express Scripts customers transfer their
prescriptions to their nearby SUPERVALU Pharmacy before they actually
need them. This will allow the pharmacies time to add new information to
their files, adjust their inventory and ultimately provide patients with
an easy and smooth transition.
For additional information, customers can call (800) 783-0458 or
visit their nearby SUPERVALU Pharmacy.
