CVS MinuteClinic expands participation with CareFirst

June 24th, 2009

MINNEAPOLIS – MinuteClinic, the in-store health clinic subsidiary of CVS Caremark Corp., has become a participating provider in all insurance plans offered by CareFirst Blue Cross Blue Shield in Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia.

CareFirst is the largest health care insurer in the mid-Atlantic region, according to MinuteClinic.

Previously, MinuteClinic was a participating provider in CareFirst's preferred provider and federal employee plans in Maryland only. The company said approximately 3.4 million CareFirst members now have in-network access to MinuteClinics in CVS pharmacies in Maryland and parts of northern Virginia in the CareFirst service area.

"This is an important development in the growth of our business in Maryland and northern Virginia as we expand access to care to new customers," MinuteClinic president Chip Phillips said in a statement. "By offering high-quality treatment in a convenient setting, we are working with CareFirst to help reduce health care insurance expenses for its members as well as time spent away from members' families and the workplace."

Minneapolis-based MinuteClinic has about 500 locations in 25 states.
