    Walgreens: No new Wash Medicaid patients

    The Associated Press

    SEATTLE Walgreens has told Washington state officials that it will no longer fill prescriptions for new Medicaid patients as of April 16 because it isn't being reimbursed enough by the state.

    The Deerfield, Ill,-based drugstore chain, which has 121 pharmacies in Washington, says it will continue to serve its existing Medicaid patients, but can't take on additional losses due to reductions in the state's payments.

    State Medicaid director Doug Porter tells The Seattle Times that Medicaid recipients should be able to easily find another pharmacy, and the state will help them locate one if needed.

    121 Walgreens Stores to Stop Taking New Medicaid Patients

    Thursday, March 18, 2010


    More than a hundred Walgreens drugstores will stop accepting new Medicaid patients next month because the company claims it is losing money, the Seattle Times reported Thursday.

    Citing "continued reduction in reimbursement" payments, Walgreens said it made the decision to stop taking new Medicaid patients at 121 stores in Washington state. The drugstore chain claims the state's Medicaid program reimburses it at less than the break-even point for 95 percent of brand-name medications given to Medicaid patients, according to the newspaper.

    The policy change will reportedly go into effect April 16.

    In February, Bartell Drugs made a similar move, opting to stop accepting new Medicaid patients

    Another example of what is coming. Reduced access to medical care and rationed medication.
