CVS Health, the preferred Pharmacy Benefits Manager for AEPC’s prescription drug program, announced these COVID-19 related actions to assist all participating AEPC groups and their members. Additionally, most participating organizations in AEPC’s Pharmacy Benefits Plan have opted to implement relaxed refill restrictions for maintenance medications at any in-network pharmacy. Individuals can check with their health plan administrators to confirm the relaxed refill policy is in place at this time.
Making sure you have access to an adequate supply of your medications is our priority.
As the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic continues to evolve, we understand that you may have questions or concerns. We are closely monitoring the situation, and because things are rapidly changing, we want to keep you informed and update you promptly of any new developments.
You have options for home delivery
With the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommending that people stay at home, especially those at high risk, we understand that you may not want or be able to visit the pharmacy to pick up your prescription medications. Home delivery is a good option to ensure you have the medications you need.
