CF Foundation Finalizes Pharmacy Alliance with Walgreens

December 7, 2012

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and Walgreens announced today that they have formally launched an alliance that gives the national drugstore chain a significant ownership stake in CF Services Inc., the Foundation’s specialty pharmacy.

The Foundation remains a partial owner of CF Services. The pharmacy will remain based in Bethesda, Md., and will continue to use its current name.

Walgreens and CF Services will work together to ensure as seamless a transition as possible for customers. CF Services customers will continue to use the same toll-free number to order medications and will interact with the same knowledgeable professionals. Customer-friendly services, such as free shipping and monthly invoices for out-of-pocket payments, will continue.

In the longer term, CF Services expects to provide new services and benefits to customers and their families.

The CF Foundation entered the alliance to provide the CF community with greater access to affordable medications and expanded pharmacy services, and to enable the Foundation to expand our patient assistance programs. Increasingly, our patient access and support programs and advocacy efforts are an important lifeline to the CF community. The alliance allows the CF Foundation to fortify these programs significantly.
