Don't know the complete impact of this or if it's even relevant. Went to CVS to fill a script after an oral surgery today. CVS said Tricare/express scripts or whatever cut ties with each other? Happened with Walgreens a couple years ago.

So, after filling scripts with CVS for 9 years I had to transfer all those meds to Rite Aid?
