CVS Caremark Launches Android Application

CVS Caremark announced today the release of the Droid application. Available at no cost through the Android Market, the new application enables users to access the Drug Information Database to learn more about various prescription drugs and allows CVS Caremark plan members to log-in and securely manage their prescriptions online.

The application can be used with Android 2.1 OS (and higher platform) phones. It is designed to further broaden mobile access to the prescription information for CVS Caremark members. An iPhone application has been available since July of 2010.

“At CVS Caremark we continue to find ways to engage and communicate with our members using new technologies to manage their prescriptions and keep them connected,” said Tim Kurth, vice president, eBusiness at CVS Caremark. “The availability of an Android app enables us to provide our plan members with convenient access to their accounts through their preferred mobile devices.”

Androids user can download the application and use the Drug Information function, which connects users to the Drug Information Database. Here, they can research particular prescription medications, get information about how to take them, learn about available generic drug alternatives, see an image of the drug, and learn about side effects and precautions.

CVS Caremark PBM members can use the application to register on or log-in securely to their existing accounts from their Androids. Once they are logged in, members can perform a variety of functions, including:

  • Refill a Prescription
  • Check Prescription Order Status
  • View Prescription History
  • Easy Mail Service Prescription Refills
  • Online New Prescription Requests
  • Check Drug Coverage and Cost
  • Locate a Network Pharmacy
