Benefit Period January 1, 2022 – December 31, 2022
Medications When You Need Them
CVS Caremark is the prescription plan carrier. Your prescription drug program allows you to obtain medications via mail or your in-network, local retail pharmacy. If you take certain medications on an ongoing basis, you save time and money by having those drugs filled for a 90-day supply through the CVS Caremark Mail Service or your local CVS pharmacy. Be sure to ask your doctor for a 90-day supply of your maintenance drugs.
Your prescription drug benefits are separate from your medical benefits. You have a separate CVS Caremark ID card that should be used at the pharmacy when filling prescriptions.
