If you currently use CVS for your prescriptions, you may hear that our health plan no longer includes CVS. This is not true for our plan. Should the pharmacy tell you that your plan is not valid, please let them know that CVS is still part of the Florida Blue network as we are a Large Group – Strategic Account and still covered. Please feel free to call our benefits team with any questions at (904) 209-0635 x5.
