PBM = Pharmacy Benefits Merger?

From email:

"It was announced on April 2, 2012, that the FTC commissioners, in a 3-to-1 vote, allowed the merger of Express Scripts, Inc. (ESI) and Medco Health Solutions, Inc. (Medco), pharmacy benefit management partner for [several carriers]."

Perhaps anticipating the usual glitches, the email included this helpful codicil:

"Please assure your groups and members they should experience business as usual while the two companies integrate."

"Business as usual." Why am I not comforted by that?
