CVS Health Statement Regarding Blue Cross and Blue Shield Federal Employee Program (FEP) Specialty Pharmacy Services Contract

March 31, 2017 | Company News

WOONSOCKET, R.I. (March 31, 2017) – CVS Health (NYSE: CVS) confirmed that its contract to provide specialty pharmacy services for the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Federal Employee Program (FEP) will terminate at the end of 2017.

Given that the contract expires at year end, the loss of this contract does not affect the Company’s 2017 financial results. The loss of this specialty pharmacy contract, which is expected to generate revenues of approximately $2.8 billion in 2017, is not expected to have a material impact on the Company’s operating profit in 2018.

As previously announced, under separate agreements which run through 2018, CVS Health will continue to provide integrated pharmacy benefit management (PBM) services, including mail service pharmacy and clinical care programs, to FEP’s more than 5.4 million federal employees, retirees and dependents.
