Effective Jan. 1, 2014, the administrator for the prescription drug portion of the Empire Plan has changed to CVS/Caremark. Note this does not mean that you need to use a CVS pharmacy. You may still use any pharmacy that participates with the New York State Empire Plan, and you will continue to use your current Empire Plan card. The temporary CVS/Caremark card and information is for you to provide your pharmacy with the new carrier information the first time you fill a prescription after Jan. 1.
