 Low Priced Daraprim Solution!

Low Priced Daraprim Solution!

Express Scripts has developed novel solution for unreasonably priced generic drugs—just compound them through your own pharmacy to (1) provide the drug to patients immediately but (2) bring down the price dramatically. What’s even more amazing—that they will share access of this supply to other payers. This is a great solution for rare diseases but not so good for high volume of patients. See details at http://managedhealthcareexecutive.modernmedicine.com/managed-healthcare-executive/news/express-scripts-offer-low-cost-option-darapim

The “Bad Boy Shkreli” continues to inflame drug industry executives and stakeholders as he blackens the eyes of the industry and brings pricing question to boiling point. He won’t be laughing when Express Scripts takes away all his customers with their new low price for Turing’s sole drug.
