We are taking steps to ensure our members’ health care coverage needs are continuous and flexible in the event of a storm. SCEMD (South Carolina Emergency Management Division) has a page dedicated to Hurricane Dorian updates to help you plan and prepare.
30-Day Emergency Prescription Refills
With the threat of Hurricane Dorian impacting the Southeast, we are preparing to ensure that members’ access to their prescription medications remains uninterrupted. As a result, we are working with CVS Caremark to implement emergency procedures to allow members to have their prescriptions filled should they be impacted by the impending storm.
All network pharmacies will be able to approve one-time emergency refills of a 30-day supply of medication for retail, mail and specialty prescriptions. For overrides for Prior Authorizations, Step Therapy, Quantity limit edits (new or renewal), please call the Customer Service number on the back of your member ID card. Caremark Help Desks are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
