Effective January 1, 2023, Smiths pharmacies will no longer be a part of the Express Scripts network. Express Scripts is the manager for the Laboratory’s retiree pharmacy benefits. If you have been using Lab benefits at Smith’s pharmacies, you should have received letters from both Express Scripts and Kroger informing you of this change. This change affects all Kroger pharmacies nationwide. (Kroger is the parent company of Smiths.) For more information see the December 13th Los Alamos Reporter article.
