In November of 2018, we will start to test the ScriptVision physician application with a limited audience of physicians. We know physicians struggle with the having the right information, easily accessible and readily available, about patients’ pharmacy benefits when prescribing. The facts are:

  • 89% of prescribers have no access to prescription pricing information for their patients.1
  • 69% of physicians are unaware of when prescriptions require a prior authorization from a plan.1
  • 20-30% of patients walk out of the pharmacy without the medicine they need because it’s not covered or it’s too expensive.2,3

Participation in the beta test of ScriptVision is limited to Express Scripts clients and physicians. For more information, please contact
