Starting anew with a known and trusted partner

Working with Suffolk County to support your EGWP members has been one of the highlights of my time with Express Scripts. Serving your retirees has provided us with a wealth of knowledge about your plan and members, and we would love nothing more than to expand on our success by supporting your active population with the same great service and member care we have provided during our partnership. We are better positioned than ever to support your team and your members. I've built this site to make sure you have access to our latest insights and resources.

As our current EGWP client, I hope you find some of this information familiar, but I also hope you learn something new and are as excited as I am for future opportunities to build on our momentum to make health care better, together.
