 St. Louis-based Fortune 100-company Express Scripts says it will build a new patient-service call center in Joplin, creating 100 new jobs.

Express Scripts is a pharmacy benefits company that manages more than a billion prescriptions each year for millions of patients in the U.S.

Gov. Jay Nixon announced Thursday that the company’s new patient-service center will mean a 960,000 dollars investment in Joplin's economy.

The state of Missouri provided economic incentives to Express Scripts as part of its expansion in Joplin.

This Saturday is the deadline for St. Louis-based Express Scripts and Walgreens to reach a deal on pharmacy drug rates. As Maria Altman reports from St. Louis,… if no agreement is reached… those who use Express Scripts will not be able to fill prescriptions at Walgreens in the New Year.
