WOONSOCKET, R.I. — CVS/pharmacy has launched a new service on its CVS.com website to assist military service members, veterans and their families who need to transfer their prescriptions to a pharmacy that lets them continue using their Tricare prescription insurance coverage.
Tricare members will find at CVS.com/tricare all of the information they need to transfer their prescriptions to one of CVS/pharmacy's 7,300 pharmacies across the United States. To help raise awareness of CVS/pharmacy's new Web page for Tricare members, the company will donate $3 to the USO for every person who visits the site between Jan. 1 and Jan. 31, up to a total of $50,000.
"CVS/pharmacy is committed to helping Tricare members on their path to better health, which is why we want to make it as easy as possible for members whose insurance may no longer be accepted at their current pharmacy to transfer their prescriptions to us," stated Papatya Tankut, VP professional pharmacy services at CVS/pharmacy. "To help ensure that patients take their medications appropriately and safely, it is important that they have all their prescriptions filled at the same pharmacy. CVS/pharmacy can fill all existing and new prescriptions for Tricare members."
