Specialty medications must be obtained by mail through the specialty pharmacy, CVS Specialty, beginning with the first fill. Long-term medications must be obtained by mail through the home delivery pharmacy or any CVS pharmacy beginning with the third fill. Non-formulary drugs are not covered.
Certain specialty medications are considered non-essential health benefits* and fall outside the out-of-pocket limits. Therefore, the cost of these drugs (though reimbursed by the manufacturer at no cost to you) will not be applied toward satisfying your out-of-pocket maximums. These non-essential health benefits will have variable copays. A list of non-essential specialty drugs will be provided once it becomes available at CVSspecialty.com/DrugList.
