Drugstore Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
drugstore.com was an internet retailer in health and beauty care products. Its web operations were launched on February 24, 1999, and shut down on September 30, 2016 after being acquired by Walgreens in March 2011 for $409 million.
According to an article posted back in September 2005 by TAMPA BAY Archives, a Palm Harbor pharmacist accused Walgreen Co., drugstore.com, the nation's largest drugstore chain, of shortchanging Medicaid recipients on millions of prescriptions and overbilling the U.S. Treasury by more than $10-million for the undelivered medicine. The whistle-blower lawsuit, which was unsealed in U.S. District Court in Tampa on Thursday, mirrors accusations made in February by federal and state officials against Eckerd Corp. Both cases stem from the same source: Louis H. Mueller, who has been an Eckerd pharmacist since 1993. Based on personal experience at Eckerd and conversations with pharmacists at Walgreens, Mueller filed whistle-blower lawsuits against both chains in 1996. The chain's pharmacists underfilled about 6 percent to 8 percent of all prescriptions because of a shortage of inventory. Yet the chain charged the price of a full prescription to third-party payers, such as insurance companies and Medicaid. Customers would be told to return for the remainder of their prescriptions, but if they didn't, the medicine would be returned to inventory and resold. The suit says about 50 percent of the customers failed to pick up medicine they were owed. Yet no refund was made to insurers or Medicaid.
