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.

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

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 http://www.caremark.com 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.
