Express Scripts Readies Emergency Support for Impacted Members in Advance of Hurricane Michael
ST. LOUIS, /PRNewswire/ -- In advance of the expected landfall later this week of Hurricane Michael, Express Scripts reminds patients to include their prescription medications in their emergency plans by printing their medication history, securing vital prescription drugs, and ensuring adequate medication supplies.
In accordance with State of Emergency declarations in Alabama and Florida, Express Scripts (NASDAQ: ESRX) has implemented emergency procedures for its members in these areas, including Medicare, Medicaid and TRICARE® beneficiaries, and patients who fill medications via the company's Accredo specialty pharmacy.
Members in an affected area can obtain an early refill to ensure they have enough medication on hand prior to the storm, or to replace any medication that is lost or damaged as a result of the storm.
In addition, Express Scripts is contacting impacted home delivery pharmacy customers and Accredo specialty customers to reschedule pending medication shipments due to the storm, or to divert the shipment to an alternate address, as needed.
Members can call the number on the back of their prescription ID card, or visit https://www.express-scripts.com, for more information.
