Eckerd is now offering folks who have a TogetherRX card a discount on generic medications in addition to the medications offered by the TogetherRX member companies.  Hard to interpret this.  TRX is a program that was developed to provide seniors with a discount on medications.  This is good.  But it was/is also a method of directing patients toward the medications that the companies sell .. and not their competition.

So now with Eckerd offering doscounts on generics .. it looks good.  But this is also a method for getting more folks to get the card .. hence more people shifthing their brand name medications to those offered by the TRX partners.

No free lunch.
