Using a Participating Retail Pharmacy in the CVS Caremark Network
There are more than 64,000 participating retail network pharmacies nationwide, including more than 20,000 independent community pharmacies.
Filling short-term prescriptions (up to a 30-day supply) at a participating retail pharmacy in the CVS Caremark network is easy and may save you money. Participating pharmacies can easily access information about your prescription benefit program and the appropriate payment. You will not need to file any claim forms when you use a participating retail pharmacy.
In most cases, you will pay more for your prescription if you use a pharmacy outside the CVS Caremark network. You will be asked to pay the full cost of the prescription price at the pharmacy. Then you will need to submit a paper claim form, along with the original prescription receipt, to CVS Caremark for reimbursement of covered expenses.
Filling long-term maintenance medicines through the CVS Caremark Mail Service Pharmacy may save you even more money
