When I called curascript to place an order today the operator said curascript will cease to exist after 5/15/2015 and I should be getting a call from accredo before the beginning of june. I did a google search and found nothing. I just hate changing pharmacies better the devil you know.

In 2012, Accredo and CuraScript SP Specialty Pharmacy came together as a result of the merger between Express Scripts and Medco. Accredo is now a wholly-owned subsidiary of Express Scripts.

I dealt with CuraScript the first year and half of taking Sprycel.  They were pretty good at what they do.  I have to deal with Walgreens for my PH meds, they are a bit flighty in their calling, scheduling, and paperwork.  When Curiscript changed over to Accredo it was a positive move for me.  Accredo was right on the ball, had meds scheduled and delivered on time, and the co pay was never messed up or overcharged like CuriScript had a habit of doing.


Best of luck with Accredo, they sent me all my PH meds, and my TKI that I didn't use. I was impressed with their dedication to detail and personal contact.

I like Accredo too, after the confusion of being a subsidiary to Express Scripts but different name. (Why can't they keep the same name and keep things simple?) I'm learning I need to check new scripts out for interactions. Accredo took the time to not only check out new script but to explain how it and another similiar script would interact. I've only had a couple of shipments and billings cycles since they are every 3 months but so far no problems.

DX 1/14; Sprycel 100 Mg, liver toxicity; Sprycel 80 Mg; down to 50 Mg for 5 months. Numbers going up. Back to 80 Mg 10/16 (with 50s slipped in to use up) BCR/ABL: .0047 12/15; .0302 4/16;  .0528 8/16;  .084 10/16; .045, 1/17 back up on 80 mg Sprycel; .006, 3/17; .016, 7/17; Shingles 8/17
