Express Scripts Canada has been granted license to bring its pharmacy benefit management (PBM) service to Manitoba and Saskatchewan.
The company’s newest pharmacy is located in Winnipeg, and is now open and available to plan members in Manitoba and Saskatchewan.
Express Scripts says its PBM service applies behavioural sciences to healthcare decision-making, to enable plan members to learn more about their maintenance medication alternatives. It also includes home delivery of maintenance prescription medications. Organizations can add the service without changing insurance carriers.
The new pharmacy in Manitoba will facilitate the dispensing and delivery of prescription drugs to treat ongoing medical conditions such as asthma, diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol. The prescription is delivered to patients’ homes or to the address they designate. Patients will also have access to pharmacists to answer questions about their medications.
