CVS, Medco Oppose Postal Cuts, Citing Delays, Costs

CVS Caremark Corp. and Medco Health Solutions Inc. are opposing the U.S. Postal Service’s plan to end Saturday delivery, saying the move would delay needed medicines and may boost mail-order drug prices.

The pharmacy-benefits management companies, which shipped more than 150 million drug orders last year, joined retailer Crate and Barrel and publishers of small newspapers to challenge the Postal Service and its plan to cut service to save about $3 billion a year.
