Walgreens introduces 90-day prescription initiative


DEERFIELD, Ill. Walgreens launched an initiative for 90-day prescriptions that promotes delivery of maintenance and chronic care medication through its national network of more than 7,000 community pharmacies and employer worksite centers.

As part of this program, Walgreens pharmacists will work with patients, physicians, insurers, employers and managed care organizations to implement a comprehensive 90-day at retail prescription program for maintenance medications including, where appropriate, the conversion of traditional 30-day chronic care prescriptions into 90-day prescriptions.

Walgreens consumer research indicates that patients prefer to use their local pharmacy for prescriptions, due in part to the opportunity to consult with a trained community pharmacist to answer questions and obtain support for managing their condition. Obtaining a 90-day supply at a conveniently located pharmacy encourages improved adherence to medication therapy, consistent interactions with a trusted and informed pharmacist and better health outcomes.
