Walgreens takes 90-day prescription program to Raleigh

RALEIGH, N.C. One week after promoting its 90-day prescription program in Minneapolis, one of the nation's largest drug store chains is taking its initiative to Raleigh, N.C.

Walgreens said Monday that through its 90-day prescription program, eligible patients in Raleigh will be able to receive certain medications in 90-day supplies from their local Walgreens pharmacy and their trusted community pharmacist, as an alternative to delivery from a mail-order pharmacy. Walgreens pharmacists will begin reaching out to physicians and eligible patients in Raleigh to educate them on the benefits of a 90-day prescription program, the company said.

Last week, the drug store chain announced its promotion of the program in community area pharmacies in Minneapolis.
