Employees Concerned over Express Scripts / Medco Merger

More than 50 employers from across the country today sent a letter to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) expressing   concern about the proposed merger between pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs) Express Scripts, Inc. (ESI) and Medco Health Solutions.  The group said that approving the $29 billion deal could make pharmacy plans more expensive for employers and hurt businesses and employers throughout their communities.

In the letter, the group urged the FTC to consider the downstream ramifications that this merger will have on health care consumers, employers seeking health care plans and the business environment in general.
