Helpful information for Retail Providers

CVS Caremark and/or plan sponsors will provide eligible persons with identification cards. Providers must request the ID card from the eligible person and utilize the information on the card to submit claims. Providers will not be paid for providing pharmacy services related to covered items to an eligible person whose eligibility was not correctly submitted.
