CVS Expansion, Cheaper Drugs

CVS Pharmacies has taken over the pharmacy operations inside Target stores. We have learned that in 2017, the basic Part D plan offered by CVS, SilverScript Choice, will not offer a preferred bracket for drugs — meaning that SilverScript/CVS will not have preferred  pharmacies for their Choice plan in 2017.

Preferred pricing will be offered for the higher end SilverScript Plus plan at Targets, and all other CVS Pharmacies.

Formularies for both Part D plans will increase to over 3300 drugs, even as CVS works to trim extremely expensive medications for which there are bio-similar alternatives.
