Commissioner Mulready Issues Statement on CVS/Caremark 90-Day Prescription Decision
OKLAHOMA CITY – Insurance Commissioner Glen Mulready released the following statement regarding CVS/Caremark’s 90-day prescription decision:
“The Oklahoma Insurance Department is receiving an increasing number of complaints about CVS/Caremark’s recent decision to no longer offer 90-day prescriptions for many of their large client employers,” Mulready said.
“We understand that Oklahoma law does not mandate the filling of 90-day prescriptions, but CVS/Caremark has made a quick and impactful business decision that will not be fixed until one year from now. This is unacceptable, and I implore CVS/Caremark to address the contractual and technical issues as quickly as possible in order to better serve Oklahoma consumers. I also encourage Oklahoma employers impacted by this decision to voice their concerns to CVS/Caremark.”
