Maintenance Choice is a feature of your prescription drug plan. Medications you take regularly (such as diabetes, asthma, or high blood pressure medications) must be filled in 90-day supplies at CVS Pharmacy or through CVS Caremark Mail Service Pharmacy™.
Maintenance Choice gives you the choice of filling prescriptions for medications you take regularly–such as high blood pressure, diabetes, or asthma medications. Either way, the cost is the same. If you fill in 30-day supplies, or at any other pharmacy, your medications won’t be covered, and you’ll have to pay the entire cost. Learn more about Maintenance Choice.
