Or you can print a general, temporary ID card without registering. Adding your personal details will allow you to use it at all network pharmacies until your permanent card arrives.
The Check Drug Cost tool defaults to the most commonly dispensed quantity and day supply for each medication covered. You can modify the quantity and day supply totals when entering a medication for review.

Network Retail Pharmacy Services
Participating network retail pharmacies will accept your TRS-Care Standard ID card and charge you the lesser of the negotiated CVS Caremark price or the usual and customary cost for up to a 31day supply of your prescription at a traditional retail network pharmacy, or up to a 90-day supply at a Retail-Plus network pharmacy. After your plan year deductible is met, you will pay the applicable copay* or coinsurance percentage of the price of the prescription until the out-of-pocket maximum is satisfied.
Your traditional retail pharmacy service is most convenient when you need a medication for a short period. For example, if you need an antibiotic to treat an infection, you can go to one of the many pharmacies that participate in the TRS-Care Standard program and get your medication on the same day. For your short-term prescriptions, you may save money by using pharmacies that participate in the Caremark network.
Retail-Plus Pharmacy Network
Retail pharmacies that choose to participate in the Retail-Plus network are able to dispense a 60-90 day supply of medication.
By using the CVS Caremark Mail Service Pharmacy, you can receive up to a 90-day supply of covered medications. After your plan year deductible is met, you will pay the applicable copay or coinsurance percentage of the price of the prescription until the out-of-pocket maximum is satisfied.
The mail service pharmacy offers you convenience and potential cost savings. If you need medication on an ongoing or long-term basis, such as medication to treat asthma or diabetes, you can ask your doctor to prescribe up to a 90-day supply for home delivery, plus refills for up to one year.
*Copayment, copay or coinsurance means the amount a member is required to pay for a prescription in accordance with a Plan, which may be a deductible, a percentage of the prescription price, a fixed amount or other charge, with the balance, if any, paid by a Plan.
