Express Scripts Holding Co., the nation's biggest pharmacy benefit manager, has received subpoenas requesting information about its relationship with pharmaceutical companies, charitable foundations and specialty pharmacies, the company said in a regulatory filing on Tuesday.

The north St. Louis County-based company said it received a demand on Aug. 15 from the United States Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York asking for information about its relationships with drug companies and prescription drug plan clients and payments made to and from those entities.

On Sept. 12 it received a subpoena from the Department of Justice and United States Attorney's Office for the District of Massachusetts requesting information about its relationship with drug companies, independent charitable foundations providing cost-sharing assistance to federal healthcare program beneficiaries and specialty pharmacies.

The company said it intends to cooperate with both inquiries and cannot predict with certainty the timing or outcome of the matter.
