ACA 1095-C Forms
Just like last year, your 1040 Tax Form for 2018 will ask if you had medical insurance coverage for all 12 months. Although the 1095 forms (IRS Form 1095-C and/or 1095-B and/or 1095-A) are NOT needed to complete your taxes for 2018, you will receive a Form 1095-C from the County by March 4 regarding the medical insurance coverage offered to you as well as your coverage information. Please check with your tax advisor if you have any questions related to your 2018 tax filing. More Information about 1095-C Forms.
CVS Prescription Coverage
As a reminder, for employees enrolled on the St Johns County health care plan, prescription coverage changed to CVS Caremark on January 1, 2019. 30-day or acute prescriptions can be filled at any pharmacy in the CVS network; 90-day maintenance medications must be filled at a CVS pharmacy or set up for mail-order. For help setting up mail-order contact CVS customer service at 844-278-5590. Set up your CVS Caremark online account and use your online account to manage your family's prescriptions.
Walmart Pharmacy Leaving CVS Network
CVS released a statement on January 15 regarding Walmart pharmacies. Despite negotiations, Walmart has decided to leave the CVS pharmacy network. CVS has asked Walmart to continue to fill prescriptions for CVS members as in-network until April 30, 2019. After this date, if you fill prescriptions at Walmart, they will process at the out-of-network benefit level, which is 50% of the allowed amount. If you are currently using Walmart to fill your prescriptions and need assistance to move to an in-network pharmacy, please call CVS Customer Service at 844-278-5590. If any of this information changes, we will send out another notification.
