thanks Darla, that would be a great benefit if it works out.

yes, CHP members can use Walgreens, and I have for 15 years; that's why I'm
perturbed by losing them come July 9.  I know the state PPO plan is also
losing access to Walgreens, but I don't know about any others insurance
options the state may offer; I've stuck with CHP for 25 years.

dear Chip,
I also understand CareMark will put Braille labels on bottles, though I
didn't know that when we had CareMark.

P.S.  Can employees use Wallgreen's for immediate prescriptions?  I do not
like CVS at all.

        Hi all,
        If you use Capitol Health Plan as your health insurance, state
employees (at least) have just been notified that they will no longer cover
prescriptions from Walgreens, as of July 9.  I believe it's January 1 if
you're getting CHP coverage through Medicare.
        You will need to move your prescriptions on file with a walgreens
pharmacy to  a caremark participating  pharmacy, which should be listed at
        I believe CVS is one such pharmacy, and they do offer a mail refill
service for "maintenance" medications.  Unlike Walgreens however, they will
not automatically contact your doctor's office with a refill request for
controlled substance prescriptions.
        This is very short notice, so I thought the sooner everyone knew,
the sooner you could begin to make other arrangements.
