United States (ECWd) -
The Army Times reported last month that CVS won a military TRICARE pharmacy contract over Walmart and Sam's Club.
Less than a month later, CVS announced it was closing 900 stores across the nation.
As of December 15, 2021, military TRICARE beneficiaries can no longer use Walmart and Sam's Club pharmacies in the Tricare network.
Military Times quoted CVS bid a lower cost and the increase in numbers of pharmacies within 5 miles of most Americans.
Now they announce they are closing almost 10% of their stores.
