30 days. 90 days. Better choices for every day.
When your members need a medication for just 30 days, or sometimes even less, we have a network for that.
A 30-day network is a great addition to any network strategy. Members can go to any pharmacy your plan prefers and save money. They can also go to any non-preferred pharmacy and still only spend $5-$10 more. In addition, a 30-day network offers:
- Broad access with up to 64,000 pharmacies
- A variety of retail anchor options, including major retail chains
- Savings of up to $3.66 PMPY
We’re working alongside our partners to make health care simpler for people filling maintenance medications.
Monthly trips to the pharmacy can be an inconvenience for patients, or their caregivers. We believe there’s a better way. By giving patients convenient options of where to fill their 90-day prescriptions, we’re enabling them to make better decisions.
There’s a health bonus, too. Patients who fill 90-day prescriptions are more likely to take their medicine as prescribed. In fact, they’re 19% more adherent on average compared with people who use 30-day fills. That tends to help them be healthier, need less medical care and save money for themselves and their plans.
We’ve recently expanded the Express Scripts Smart90 program to offer even more convenience with national retail chains, such as Walgreens, CVS, Wal-Mart, Rite Aid, local independent pharmacies and our new Key Anchors option which includes both CVS and Walgreens as anchors together. With the addition of our new Smart90 Anywhere retail anchor option, we now offer an even wider variety of anchor choices that can be integrated into any of the configurations below. As always, members have the option to have a 90-day supply delivered right to their door from the Express Scripts Pharmacy®, where patients are supported by our condition-specific Therapeutic Resource Centers® that are staffed by specialized pharmacists and other clinicians. There are four different ways to implement Smart90 into a plan. You can read about them all below.
In addition to cost savings, safety benefits and convenience for members, home delivery from Express Scripts Pharmacy also cuts down on pharmacy-related waste – a significant problem in our health care system. Now there are four different ways to incorporate home delivery into your plan.
