Pharmacies to be Removed from National Plus Network and Sam's Club to be Removed from All Networks

09-02-2020

Medical Mutual's pharmacy department regularly reviews network pharmacies to ensure our members are provided the best quality, price and service when receiving their prescription medications. In order to continue offering the most competitive pricing, Express Scripts is narrowing their networks by eliminating chain pharmacies with little presence within particular regions. As result, effective Oct.1, 2020, the following pharmacies will be removed from our ESI National Plus pharmacy networks:

  • Ahold
  • Albertson's
  • Safeway
  • Epic (outside Ohio)
  • Sam's Club

Please note that Sam's Club will be removed from all ESI networks as that pharmacy was unwilling to agree to Express Scripts' standard terms and conditions, including market-competitive rates.

A letter will be sent to affected members to inform them of this change and to suggest other in-network pharmacies located near them.
