TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Oct. 21, 2013) - Symbility Health Inc., a division of Symbility Solutions Inc. (TSX VENTURE:SY)(OTCQX:ATBEF), is pleased to confirm the addition of pharmacy services, offered as part of a longstanding, strategic partnership with Express Scripts Canada.

Effective immediately, Symbility Health will begin to represent Express Scripts Canada's pharmacy services to its large national network of Third Party Administrators (TPAs), brokers and their group benefit customers. When an employee group signs up for the pharmacy services through Symbility Health's software platform, prescription maintenance medications will be dispensed by Express Scripts Canada's experienced pharmacists and delivered directly to the customer's address. The pharmacy feature, part of an extensive array of products and services already offered by Symbility Health, will provide plan members with help managing their drug plan and medications, considerable savings, as well as convenience and peace of mind thanks to the pharmacy's reliability.

"We value and appreciate the long-standing relationship that Express Scripts Canada has developed with Symbility and are excited about this latest arrangement which will certainly benefit both of our organizations," said Michael Biskey, President, Express Scripts Canada. "The introduction of our active pharmacy benefit management solution is a positive step towards helping employers deal with the steadily rising costs of the prescription drug benefit."

"Working together, Symbility Health and Express Scripts Canada will deliver products and services that will provide our mutual customers with real savings," said Richard Adair, President and COO, Symbility Solutions. "Offering Express Scripts Canada's Pharmacy Benefit Management services through our national network of TPAs and brokers will result in a significant reduction of costs and, more importantly, plan members will experience convenience with every refill that is delivered directly to the address of their choice."
