Thought leadership

At Express Scripts, we manage prescriptions for nearly 100 million Americans each year. This is a great responsibility - one that drives everything we do. Through our industry-leading research methodology and strategic business model, we make the use of prescription drugs safer and more affordable for consumers across the country.

Our unique research platform - Health Decision Science - is the key to understanding why people make the decisions they do, why we tend to behaviors that compromise our health and the affordability of our healthcare, and what we can do about it. Health Decision Science combines the complementary capabilities of clinical specialization, actionable data and behavioral science to drive better decisions and healthier outcomes for consumers.

We believe that by understanding consumer health behaviors, we can help people make decisions that will improve health outcomes at a lower cost.

Living our values

The Express way

The Express Way defines our culture — who we are and how we work. The way we do business, our values and how, as individuals and members of a team, we seize opportunities and overcome challenges are guided by its pillars.

Who we are

Integrity The compass that guides every decision we make and every action we take. Nothing matters more.

Mutual Respect The way we treat each other. The way we treat those we serve.

Passion The fuel that powers us. Engaging, challenging and always reaching.

How we work

Alignment The backbone of our business. We do the right thing for clients and patients.

Collaboration The way we work together. The way we do more.

Service The very heart of what we do. Compassion for patients and commitment to clients. We know people count on us every day. These values are incorporated into leadership training, companywide and personal scorecards, and recruiting information. All employees incorporate The Express Way into their daily work.

Giving back

Charitable giving has always been important to Express Scripts. We're strongly committed to making a positive difference in communities where we work and live, and our charitable efforts support hundreds of organizations across the country.

To achieve maximum impact, we focus our community efforts in five key areas:

  • Providing access to health and medical services for those in need.
  • Educating underserved youth to prepare them for success.
  • Providing services to U.S. military troops and their families.
  • Strengthening communities by aiding children and families in need.
  • Supporting pharmacy education.

We show communities we care in many ways, through sustainability initiatives, corporate giving, the Express Scripts Foundation, our Matching Gifts program, employee volunteer efforts and Operation Good Neighbor.

Inclusive culture

We are proud of our long-standing commitment to diversity. The diversity of our workforce is a business driver – it’s important that our workforce reflects the diversity of the clients and patients we serve.

We reinforce this commitment by being a dedicated diversity management organization. We continue to develop and implement programs to ensure we are maximizing the benefits of our culturally diverse workforce, as well as our robust, diverse supplier network. Those benefits include improved innovation, collaboration, and employee engagement.

We recognize the importance of going beyond diversity and providing an inclusive environment where different perspectives and backgrounds are united together. Our diversity council, representing functions from across the company, works actively to find ways to make our diversity a competitive advantage. We know that what we do today to create a diverse and inclusive environment will help us continue to succeed in the future.

We invite you to learn more about how we are living our values.

Our commitment to Diversity & Inclusion is also displayed through key strategic partnerships with NBMBAA, The Consortium, INROADS and NSHMBA.
