Effective January 1, 2018, CVS Caremark is the College's new Pharmacy Benefit Manager (PBM). If you are enrolled in the College's medical plan your prescription coverage will automatically transfer to CVS Caremark.
Please note: The prescription benefit for the plan has not changed. The copay and coinsurance design will remain the same.
What does this change mean to you?
- The College's move to CVS Caremark does not mean you are restricted to using only CVS retail pharmacies (with the exception on Specialty prescription). CVS Caremark has a large network of participating pharmacies to choose from. A pharmacy locator tool can be found here.
- Participants with a Specialty prescription will now have access to the CVS Caremark Care Team and Specialty Connect program. These programs allow those with a Specialty prescription to have access to a team of pharmacists who specialize in their condition. It also allows for the opportunity to drop off and pick up Specialty prescriptions at your local CVS retail pharmacy (mail order is still available).
- Participants in both the Choice HDHP and the Standard PPO will have a new Formulary list. Call 1-866-246-7145 to get additional details.
- Drug Pricing Tools (please use Chrome or Firefox as your browser)
We are working with CVS Caremark to make this transition as smooth as possible. As part of the change, CVS Caremark and Express Scripts are collaborating to transfer your existing prescription(s) so you will not need a new one from your doctor. CVS Caremark will contact participants directly if a prescription cannot be transferred along with any prescription that will no longer be covered or will change prescription tiers.
