Express Scripts makes the use of prescription drugs safer and more affordable for tens of millions of consumers through thousands of employers, government, union and health plans.
Founded in 1986 and never owned by a drug manufacturer, Express Scripts aligns its interests with those of plan sponsors and their members. This legacy of independence means that the company's programs and original research on the pharmacy benefit serve its clients.
Express Scripts drives to lowest net cost by enabling better health and value at the consumer level. As evidence, Express Scripts' generic dispensing rate leads the industry.
They call St. Louis home, but there are administrative, pharmacy, and customer service operations throughout the United States and Canada. Express Scripts continues to expand its services and today there are more than 11,500 employees focused on their mission to make the use of prescription drugs safer and more affordable. Their Code of Conduct provides the framework for their actions as they advance this mission in every aspect of their business.
Express Scripts handles millions of prescriptions each year through Home Delivery and at retail pharmacies.
They share a common cause with each of their clients - to help offer a healthy prescription-drug benefit today and into the future. In support of this effort, they've launched The Center for Cost-Effective Consumerism. The Center and its Advisory Board provide forward thinking and key insights to drive better health and value in the pharmacy benefit. The Advisory Board includes nationally recognized experts in the science of human behavior and decision making.
By combining insights from the Center with Express Scripts' proven ability to develop, test, and implement industry-leading programs, they provide the greatest opportunity to encourage smarter prescription-drug choices and achieve the lowest total plan cost.
