Express Scripts is the Cigna-owned PBM that administers the TRICARE benefit on behalf of the Department of Defense. Recently, Express Scripts instituted pharmacy network changes that impact 400,000 TRICARE beneficiaries by shrinking the retail network by almost 15,000 pharmacies.

The terms of the new contracts were simply unworkable for most.

In addition, Express Scripts then abruptly terminated the 2022 contracts Oct. 24. We have engaged with the Department of Defense and our congressional delegation on this issue, and encourage you to as well. All of South Dakota's members of Congress signed a letter asking the Department of Defense for answers to key questions on this matter. 

We encourage you to sign the petition under Key Resources on the left - encourage your teams and patients to do the same.
