CVS Maintenance Choice (with opt-out) Program

Employees Take Note!

Please remember that the CVS Maintenance Choice (with opt-out) program has recently been implemented by the State of RI. Employees are able to save money through this program by choosing to fill their maintenance prescription drugs for 90 day supplies through CVS mail order or in person at CVS Pharmacy locations and select Target stores. The advantage of this program is that you will pay a 2 month co-pay for a 90 day supply of medication instead of a 3 month co-pay.

There is absolutely no requirement that you utilize the 90 day program to fill maintenance medications. If you choose to continue to fill only 30 day supplies of maintenance medications at a preferred non-CVS pharmacy, you can opt out of the program by contacting CVS Customer Care at 1-800-307-5432.  Please note that if you do not call to opt out, you will be charged full price for your next prescription.

If you choose to opt out, you can opt back in by going to CVS/Target or use the mail order program in the future.

If you would like more information or have any questions, please call the HR Department at x2311 or visit

UnitedHealthcare Virtual Visits and Choosing Care 

With so many options available, it’s important that you make the right choice when selecting where you receive health care.

Please review the “Choosing Care” flyer for guidance from UnitedHealthcare on how you can make the best choice for your health and your wallet.

Additionally, the Rhode Island State Employee Health Plan is proud to introduce Virtual Visits from UnitedHealthcare.
