Find a Pharmacy

We have thousands of pharmacies to choose from in our nationwide network. A network pharmacy is a pharmacy that has contracted to participate in our network to provide you with covered prescription drugs. Our network has contracts with pharmacies that equal or exceed the CMS requirement for pharmacy access in your area. Our pharmacy network includes retail, home delivery, long-term care, home infusion and Indian/Tribal/Urban pharmacies. Generally, you must use network pharmacies to get your prescription drugs covered, except under non-routine circumstances. Quantity limitations and restrictions may apply.

What is a Preferred Pharmacy?

There are 65,000 pharmacies participating in our nationwide pharmacy network. The network also includes 35,000 pharmacies that are considered preferred pharmacies. You will save money using a preferred pharmacy because your copays will be lower for prescriptions on tiers 1 through 4. There will be a higher copay for prescriptions on tiers 1 through 4 (on average $5 more for each tier) if a standard pharmacy is utilized.
