CVS Caremark Opioid Management Strategy Update
In order to align with the FDA's recommendations for opioid usage, the USG will be implementing a new management strategy to ensure your use of opioid medication for pain management is safe. Beginning March 1, the amount of opioid medication your prescription benefit plan will cover is changing. These limits will be communicated to you individually via personal letter from CVS Caremark. Let your doctor know that there are new limits to the amount of your medication that your plan will cover. If your doctor decides that a different quantity of medicine is right for you, you or your doctor can request prior authorization for coverage. If you have questions about your plan benefits, please visit or call the Customer Care number on the back of your member ID card.
