Our commitment to public policy
Bringing our heart to transforming health care in America
Addressing health care disparities
At CVS Health®, our public policy objectives are shaped by our determination to take on many of the country’s most prevalent and pressing health care needs by understanding and acting on what consumers want and need — personalized, people-centered care that treats them like a human being, not a number. We help people navigate the health care system — and their personal health care — by improving access, lowering costs and being a trusted partner for every meaningful moment of health. And we do it all with heart, each and every day.
Transforming health care and addressing health disparities in the United States necessitates our participation in the policymaking process in the communities that we serve to ensure that the interests of our business, customers, shareholders and colleagues are fairly represented at the local, state and federal levels.
Our public policy objectives
Understanding and combatting public health issues and disparities that are unique to individual communities are critical to affecting change.
We encourage market innovations that promote value and put people in control of their own health care.
Access to coverage
CVS Health has a long track record of supporting affordable health coverage for all Americans.
On drug prices, our advocacy remains focused on what really is the cause of high drug costs: list prices.
We’re delivering the changes health care consumers demand
We believe that every American should have access to affordable, high-quality health coverage options.
For us, it’s about meeting people where they are — in their communities, their homes and virtually.
Driven by data, clinical insights and a deep understanding of the health care environment, we create solutions to help our members improve outcomes and lower costs.
We continue to support the health care system’s transformation toward rewarding value for consumers, health plans, employers and other stakeholders.
We’re committed to actionable transparency for consumers, members and clients by providing clear, relevant and meaningful information.
The COVID-19 pandemic has reaffirmed our emphasis on health services as we have undertaken testing and vaccine distribution efforts.
