UPMC should reconsider plan

I just read in the Mirror about UPMC wanting to drop the local pharmacies for prescriptions for the Medicare Advantage pharmacy list.

I think this is outrageous and pure greed on the part of UPMC.

You would think they would want to support the local businesses.

I have dealt with Dick’s Pharmacy all my life. You will not find better people anywhere.

Why would they want to take this away from them? It’s bad enough they took away their other Medicare services. Now they want to do the same with prescriptions.

I, along with many, many people I know are very upset about this. It is not fair to do this to a local company that has been in business for years. The same goes for Thompson Pharmacy.

We always see these advertisements that say: “UPMC cares.”

It makes me wonder.

I hope they reconsider what they are doing.
