Filling Your Prescription

Filling your prescription is as easy as visiting a participating network pharmacy and presenting your WellCare ID card. You will be responsible for any out-of-pocket expenses as stipulated in your insurance benefits.

Requesting Drug Coverage

If your medication isn't covered, you can fill out a Prescription Drug Coverage Request form found on the WellCare website. Your prescriber or another approved individual may also fill out this form on your behalf. This request can also be made via phone, at 1-866-800-6111. If the request is time-sensitive and waiting for a decision may seriously harm your health, your life or impact your ability to regain maximum function, you can request an expedited decision. Otherwise, the standard response time is 72 hours.

CVS Caremark Mail Service

While WellCare has over 68,000 pharmacies in its network, it also offers a convenient mail-order option for patients who prefer having medications delivered right to their door. For this option, WellCare has partnered with CVS Caremark Mail Service Pharmacy. With CVS Caremark, members can receive up to a three-month supply of medication at a time. The benefits of this service include cost savings, convenience and automatic refills and reminders. Members can call 1-866-808-7471 to sign up for this convenient service.
