Your CVS/caremark prescription benefit plan gives you access to the medicine you need to stay healthy. Our team of doctors and pharmacists makes sure your plan includes medicines that work well and are cost effective. If your current medicine is affected by a change in your plan, you will need to talk to your doctor about choosing a different medicine. If you do not change, you may have to pay the full cost to keep using your current medicine.*
You don't have to pay too much to treat your health condition. Your plan includes medicines to treat your condition that can have the same health benefits as higher-cost options but may save you money. Just ask your doctor which covered option(s) will work for you.
Don't wait. Follow these steps to get a covered option filled right away:
Filling at a retail pharmacy? Have your doctor call in the new prescription(s) to your local pharmacy.
