Express Scripts Inc. Research Report

On September 17, 2013, Express Scripts Inc. (Express Scripts) reported the findings of Fifty States of Confusion - its new survey revealing major misconceptions among seniors over how healthcare reform impacts Medicare benefits. The Company informed that this knowledge gap among seniors, together with fear about the affordability of healthcare, could lead them to make poor Medicare enrollment and health decisions. According to the Company, the major findings were: one-in-five seniors mistakenly thinks they can enroll in a medical and prescription drug plan through a health insurance exchange, even though the eligibility age ends at 65; another 17% believe health exchanges could replace their Medicare plan altogether. Rebecca Rabbitt, PharmD, Vice President, Government Programs at Express Scripts said, "The conflicting chatter about healthcare reform has seniors confused about what actions they need to take this fall and concerned about their finances." Express Scripts informed that in order to help seniors make better decisions, the Company is offering a free eGuide, "Navigating Medicare: A Roadmap for Seniors and Caregivers" available at http://www.roadmapformedicare.com.
