About Express Scripts (

Founded in 1986 and never owned by a drug manufacturer or retail pharmacy, 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 only its clients and nobody else.
In keeping with the philosophy of Value-Based Purchasing, Express Scripts drives to lowest net cost by enabling better health and value at the consumer level. For example, Express Scripts' generic dispensing rate leads the industry.  In support of this effort, Express Scripts has 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, we provide the greatest opportunity to encourage smarter prescription-drug choices and achieve the lowest total plan cost.
