CVS to manage pharmacy benefits for Regence plan in 2017
Beginning Jan. 1, 2017, CVS Caremark™ replaces Express Scripts as the prescription benefits administrator for King County employees on the KingCare (Regence) health plan.
Members of this plan will receive a welcome kit and new ID card in late-December, and can fill prescriptions at any of the 64,000 pharmacies in the CVS network, including major chains such as Bartell, Rite Aid, Walgreens, Safeway, Fred Meyer, Costco and Wal-Mart. CVS will automatically begin managing current prescriptions on January 1 if the preferred pharmacy is in their network. For more information, call CVS Customer Care at 1-844-380-8838.
