The United Food & Commercial Workers Unions and Food Employers Benefit Fund has changed the pharmacy benefit manager from OptumRx to CVS Caremark. This will save the fund tens of millions of dollars.
For the vast majority of members nothing will change and you can still use your current pharmacy choice. For some members that use name brand or specialty medications, you’ll have to get your doctors permission to continue using them instead of the plan’s preferred generic medications.
Below are some Frequently Asked Questions regarding CVS Caremark. Please read through.
