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.
