The future is: to overrun Walgreens with superior retail, PBM and marketing advantages.
Cut Walgreens out of more and more insurance pharmacare programs by reducing reimbursements and by making retail redemptions only available at CVS/Longs locations.
Take advantage of Walgreens ridiculous and grandiose Pharmacist compensation programs by initially hiring BETTER people at CVS, and by offereing them a better, longterm and stable future. Allow your employees to at least take a lunch and pee break, like normal human beings would expect, from any compassionate employer (except Walgreens).
What is coming in the future for CVS? Huge success! Huge shareholder rewards!
What is coming in the future of Walgreens? Extreme pain and continued loss of shareholder value.
