About 64,000 pharmacies participate in our nationwide network. Our network has contracts with pharmacies that equal or exceed the CMS requirement for pharmacy access in your area. Generally, you must use network pharmacies to get your prescription drugs covered, except under non-routine circumstances and quantity limitations and restrictions may apply. A network pharmacy is a pharmacy that has contracted to participate in our network to provide your covered prescription drugs. Our pharmacy network includes retail, mail order, long-term care, home infusion and Indian/Tribal/Urban pharmacies.
If you don't have prescription drug coverage, you may be eligible for our FLRx ValueAdd Program or the EPIC Program.
