Why was I told I need to use front-line drugs for Express Scripts Step Therapy home delivery?

Step therapy applies to prescriptions you receive at your local pharmacy, as well as those you order through home delivery, so the same basic process applies. Your doctor may write a prescription for a front-line drug covered by your plan, or your doctor can request an override.

If you have more questions, you can go to to watch informative videos, or call the Express Scripts Pharmacy at the number on your ID card. (This FAQ answer provided by ExpressScripts.)
