Dear Express Scripts…
APC joined five other pharmacy trade associations on a letter this week to Express Scripts and Cigna urging them to reconsider their decision to shrink TRICARE’s retail network by almost 15,000 pharmacies.
The pharmacy network changes were made effective on October 24 by Express Scripts, which administers the TRICARE benefit on behalf of the Department of Defense. The changes are estimated to impact 400,000 TRICARE beneficiaries—people who are currently serving or have served in the US military.
In the letter, the associations urge Express Scripts to keep all pharmacies that were included in the 2022 TRICARE network in the 2023 network at the 2022 terms and conditions.
