Pharmacist explains prescription to patient

Get your prescriptions mailed to you

 

If you take medicine for an ongoing health condition, you can have it mailed to your home. Aetna Better Health works with CVS Caremark® to give you this service at no extra cost. You can expect each order to be checked for safety. And you can speak with a pharmacist on the phone anytime.

 

You’ll just need the following information:

 

  •  Plan member ID card
  •  Mailing address, including ZIP code
  •  Doctor’s first and last name and phone number
  •  A list of your allergies and other health conditions
  •  Your original prescription from your doctor (if you have it)

 

How to get started

 

Call the CVS Caremark toll-free number at 1-855-271-6603, (TTY: 711), 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They will let you know which of your medicines can be filled through the mail service pharmacy. Then they will contact your doctor for prescriptions and mail the medicines directly to you.
