    someone got slapped!

    Dice up ESRX-WAG contract:

    Brand contract price will be fairly stable, its all about generics.....
    90 day brand fills will be very low margin.

    Generic reimbursement cost will be cut by I guesstimate at least 10% from current levels...
    so if total ESRX and MHS business is 14% of total revenue, .7 of 14% to amount for Brand Sales....well you know where I am going with the math, you can guestimate how much gross margin loss we are looking it......... WAG will not walk away from ESRX/MHS, they will end up lower margins, and will consolidate stores....its coming!
