The PGA Championship begins today in St. Louis, and all eyes will be on the golf professionals at one of the sport’s premier competitions. Here at Express Scripts, we’ve been focused on a PGA event with a lower profile but one that is in lock step with our mission and values.

Express Scripts was the exclusive sponsor of the 2018 PGA HOPE Secretary’s Cup, held last weekend in St. Louis. PGA HOPE is the flagship military program of PGA REACH, the charitable foundation of the Professional Golfers' Association of America. PGA HOPE introduces golf to veterans with disabilities, with the goal of enhancing their physical, mental, social and emotional well-being. The Secretary’s Cup, a tournament that matches veterans with professionals, provided an opportunity for us to celebrate some of the people we serve as well as the work we do each day.

Since 2002, Express Scripts has had the privilege of serving the pharmacy needs of those who protect our nation. Approximately 10 million beneficiaries – active-duty personnel, their families and military retirees – are covered under the TRICARE Pharmacy Program. In addition, approximately 1 in 12 of Express Scripts’ 27,000 employees is a veteran, representing every branch of the service, decades-long careers and multi-generation military families.

PGA Hope benefits more than 3,500 veterans from across the country who are living with illnesses or injuries.  Some have cognitive challenges, including traumatic brain injury or post-traumatic stress disorder. Others are amputees or deal with other physical challenges.

We are inspired by these men and women, as well as all veterans and those who continue to serve, and we’re proud of our partnership with PGA Hope. We remain focused on improving healthcare, working for a simpler, more sustainable system and better health for all.  We are Champions for Better.
