Nationwide Coalition Issues 'Call To Action' To Stop Express Scripts/Medco Merger
Date:10/26/2011

he healthcare of tens-of-millions of Americans. The result would be limited access to and choice of pharmacies and increased costs for prescription medications. It could also create an un-welcomed and dangerous precedent for health care and pharmacy access.

"Not all mergers are bad, but there is a reason that this particular one is the target of much scrutiny," said Dennis Archer, chief legal counsel for the Preserve Community Pharmacy Access NOW! (PCPAN) coalition. "The merger between Express Scripts and Medco would create a mega pharmacy benefit management company with excessive control and concentrated market share that could have serious implications for consumers and for U.S. health care in general. It should not be allowed to move forward."

Those who want to answer the coalition's call to action can visit the coalition website, to sign a petition that will be sent to the FTC and Members of Congress and find contact information to call or write their local representatives to urge them to support patient care and oppose the merger.

Preserve Community Pharmacy Access NOW! is a coalition of consumers, businesses and community-based pharmacists from across the country that have come together for the purpose of opposing the planned merger between Express Scripts Inc. and Medco Health Solutions Inc. PCPAN is a project of Pharmacy Choice and Access Now.
