MVP Members are now able to obtain an early refill on a 30-day supply of maintenance medications at an in-network pharmacy, regardless of whether the state the Member resides in has called a state of emergency. Medicaid Members who are quarantined or whose provider suggests self-quarantine may contact CVS to request a 90-day supply of maintenance medications during the COVID crisis. MVP Medicare Members may request a 90-day supply of medications at an in-network pharmacy. Members should speak with their pharmacist to enter the applicable emergency supply override code into their dispensing systems to trigger the early refill override.
Members with a mail-order benefit taking maintenance medications should be encouraged to take advantage of the ability to receive a 90-day supply of medication through the CVS Caremark Mail Order pharmacy and mailed directly to their home. Some retail pharmacies will also mail prescriptions to a home address; Members should be encouraged to please ask their pharmacist if this is an option.
Controlled substances and specialty medications will be exempt from this override process. Please remember that most specialty medications may be obtained from the CVS Specialty Pharmacy, which mails prescriptions to a Member’s home already.
