Nick Taylor, a Senior Pharmacy Benefits Consultant with The Segal Group, made the following statement following today’s news that Cigna has acquired Express Scripts:
Cigna has a focused vision of impacting healthcare at a patient level through engagement and keeping patients healthy. Express Scripts fits into this vision very well. Express Scripts focuses on making it easier for patients to get medications and stay compliant on a healthcare journey. Both companies bring patient-focused solutions to the table, which will lessen the need to build new and innovative solutions from scratch. The expected accretive earnings of the combined company support the synergy in how both companies go to market.
