540,000 Patients Lose Compounded Prescription Coverage says Patients and Physicians for Rx Access
Share |


According to Patients and Physicians for Rx Access, Express Scripts, the nation's largest pharmacy benefit manager, is offering "ambiguous and misleading reasons" for ending coverage of customized prescription medications for 540,000 individuals in order to conceal financial motives, a Patients and Physicians for Rx Access spokesperson said August 14. The organization is fighting to stop the unprecedented benefit cuts being made by Express Scripts and other pharmacy benefit managers.

"In July Express Scripts began sending form letters to more than a half-million patients nationwide, saying it will stop paying for their compounded medications on September 15," said Jay McEniry, executive director of Patients and Physicians for Rx Access. "Patients are sharing those letters with us. The letters are filled with misleading statements designed to confuse these patients while denying them access to important medications prescribed by their doctor."
