If a member takes a maintenance medicine for an ongoing health condition, they can have it mailed to their home. We work with CVS Caremark® to give members this service at no extra cost.

They’ll need the following information to get started:
Plan member ID card
Mailing address, including ZIP code
Doctor’s first and last name and phone number
A list of their allergies and other health conditions
Their original prescription from their doctor (if they have it)
Members can call the CVS Caremark toll-free number at 1-855-271-6603 (TTY: 711), 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They’ll let members know which of their medicines can be filled through the CVS Caremark Mail Service Pharmacy. They’ll also contact the member’s doctor for a prescription and mail them their medicine.
