    Walmart gouging RX customers

    "Most pharmacy retailers have adopted a loss-leader strategy, Tamler said. At least 1 retailer is giving away a 30-day supply of metformin to get patients into the pharmacy. At the same time, pharmacies are increasing prices on branded Rx products to make up for declining generic prices. The survey found that since the 2008 survey, branded prices have risen by 32% at Wal-Mart, by 34% at independents, and by 35% at Kmart." Drug Topics July 12, 2011
