EXPRESS SCRIPTS LETTERS CONCERN SOME

Involves State GIC Plan

AUGUST 11, 2009: A number of members, who are insured under the state insurance plan, are concerned by a letter they received from Express Scripts, the Commonwealth's Group Insurance Commission's prescription drug provider.

The letter, which was sent to 42,000 Express Scripts subscribers, requires that these members must notify Express Scripts if they want to continue to receive their maintenance prescriptions (drugs taken regularly to treat an ongoing condition) through a local pharmacy rather than through "Home Delivery", the Express Scripts mail order pharmacy program.
