Retail pharmacies are appropriate for short-term medication that a patient needs right away, for example, an antibiotic. However, for long-term maintenance medications for chronic conditions – such as a blood pressure medication that a patient takes every day for several years – it just makes sense for a patient to use a home delivery pharmacy.
9 out of 10 patients think the service and value from using home delivery is as good as – or better than – retail pharmacies.
The Express Scripts Pharmacy offers more convenience, greater savings and better care.

More Affordable for the Country: The country could save an additional $96.3 billion if every patient used home delivery for their maintenance medications.
