As we all navigate the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, we understand you may be facing very difficult business decisions that could leave people in your workforce without health benefits.
Introducing Express Scripts Parachute RxSM – a temporary program to help Americans who are uninsured as a result of this pandemic obtain prescription drugs at deeply discounted prices so they can take them as prescribed and stay healthier through these times.
As a reminder, Parachute Rx is not health insurance.
Thanks to an unprecedented partnership with manufacturers and pharmacies across the country, eligible individuals pay $25 or less* for a 30-day supply of thousands of generics and $75 or less* for a 30-day supply of many brand-name drugs commercially insured members take today.
People can choose to get their medications delivered to their home from Express Scripts Pharmacy® or at more than 50,000 participating pharmacies, including Walgreens, CVS Pharmacy, Rite-Aid and thousands of grocers and local independent pharmacies.
A list of participating brand-name drugs is available on the Parachute Rx consumer website.
There are two easy ways individuals can take advantage of Parachute Rx:
Customer service representatives are available to help 7 days a week, 8 am to 9 pm ET, toll-free at 877.644.0212.
This is a unique program that only Express Scripts can deliver as we continue to champion better health care when people need it most.
We’ve made it easy for you to spread the word about this new program and help impacted individuals take advantage of these savings. You can download a Parachute Rx Toolkit with ready-to-use communications, including:

Your consent helps former members more easily make use of Parachute Rx discounts with home delivery from Express Scripts Pharmacy®.
Client consent allows us to do one of two things, depending on the former member:
Without client consent, consumer experience is sub-optimal:
Regardless of client consent to use certain eligibility data, your former members will still have the option to take advantage of Parachute Rx discounts.
