Caremark has more than 54,000 participating retail pharmacies nationwide, including more than 20,000 independent community pharmacies.
Using a Caremark participating retail pharmacy for filling short-term prescriptions (up to a 30-day supply) is convenient and economical. Participating pharmacies can easily access information about your prescription benefit program and the appropriate payment. You will not need to file any additional paperwork when you use a participating retail pharmacy.
You may also buy a 31-to 90-day supply of drugs at an Extended Days' Supply (EDS) Network Pharmacy. You will not pay the retail maintenance fee for a 31-to 90-day supply at an EDS pharmacy. See the full list of EDS pharmacies.
In most cases, you will pay more for your prescription if you use a pharmacy outside the Caremark network. You will pay 100% of the prescription price at the pharmacy. Then, you will need to submit a paper claim form along with the original prescription receipt to Caremark for reimbursement of covered expenses.
