Opioid Patients Beware: Caremark/CVS Has “God Complex”

Earlier in the year CVS changed it’s prescription policy, certain drugs could only be refilled two days before the prescription ran out. Patients were not informed nor is a list of drugs available, at my location.

This second change is huge! If you have a Chronic illness, addicted to Opioids with limited access to transpiration you’re life drastically changes February 1, 2018.

This isn’t about me, it’s about you. How will the policy change affect you? Will having only a seven-day supply of Opioid medication create hardship. The policy changes are not Local Laws, State Laws or Federal laws.

I’m mad as hell for the people whose lives are negatively affected. If you are mad as hell, good it’s your right. I am starting a Petition against CareMark/CVS and hope you will take time to sign when released.

In a new effort to tackle the deadly opioid addiction crisis in the United States, pharmacy giant CVS announced Friday that it will limit opioid prescriptions to seven days for certain conditions. This restriction will apply to patients who are new to pain therapy.

The new pharmacy program will also limit the daily dosage of pain pills based on their strength and will require use of immediate-release formulations before extended-release opioids — intended for severe, long-term pain treatment — are dispensed.
The changes will roll out February 1 and cover all commercial, health plan, employer and Medicaid clients.
