Costco has the best pharmacy network in the country, but the other two chains are much better than the others, according to a survey by consulting firm EY.
Here’s how it works:1.

Walgreens pharmacy networkCostco, the largest pharmacy chain in the US, has been in the news lately for a series of health-care scandals.
In July, it announced that its chief executive, Steve Roth, had resigned.
The company also said it was considering a deal with Medicare.
In September, it was revealed that a former employee of Roth’s was accused of stealing $100 million in retirement savings from the company.
Roth’s departure is one of several scandals to come out of the US drug industry, but a separate scandal involving the CEO of the National Institutes of Health, Francis Collins Jr., has been overshadowed by other scandals, such as a report that drug prices have doubled in recent years.
Here are some of the more notable pharmacy-related controversies.1.
Costco and Walgops have the same pharmacy networkIn this video, Costco CEO Steve Roth walks through how his company makes money by providing more affordable drug coverage and lower prices.2.
Rite Aid and Walgreen’s have very different pharmacy networksWhile Walgens pharmacy network offers cheaper prices, Rite Aid has a much better network of pharmacies in many states, and a better selection of drugs.
The pharmacy network at Walgrees has a lot more specialty drugs and drugs that are expensive.
The difference is that Walgorns network is so broad that it covers almost every state.3.
Costs have gone up at Rite Aid and Rite Aid’s have gone downAt the beginning of the year, Walgos pharmacy network had about 10,000 pharmacies and about 1,000 doctors, pharmacists, and other pharmacists in more than 20 states.
Since the beginning, the network has fallen short of Walgoses demand, with more than 100% of its members unable to get access to any drugs.4.
Cost of drugs at Rite AIDs and WalGreens is much higherCost of medications at WalGens is much cheaper than at Rite OIDs and Rite AnDs.
That means you pay more for the same product, and you’re paying more for that product.5.
Rita Health is a good dealFor some people, the cost of prescription drugs at Wal-Mart and Rite Aids is much lower than at the two largest US pharmacy networks.
But that’s not necessarily the case for everyone.
For example, in a survey conducted by pharmacy consulting firm McKinsey & Co. in September, nearly half of respondents said they would not buy generic drugs at the three chains.
It’s possible that people who have trouble paying for drugs at those chains may be more willing to try generic drugs when they can get cheaper drugs at another chain.
