NEW YORK (Reuters) - Pharmacy benefit manager Express Scripts Holding Co's (ESRX.O: Quote) top executive said on Tuesday that despite its contract dispute with Anthem Inc (ANTM.N: Quote) over pharmaceutical price cuts Anthem says it is owed, it aims to keep the health insurer as a customer.

"We want to make clear that we are confident that we have negotiated in good faith," Express Scripts Chief Executive Officer George Paz said during a conference call with analysts to discuss the company's first-quarter earnings, which were announced Monday evening.
