  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.
