Quantity Restrictions on Covered Medications

There may be quantity limits on certain medicines. Quantity limits are based on the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) recommended dosing guidelines for each medication and are reviewed regularly by Caremark to ensure clinical appropriateness. Limits are set to ensure safety and efficacy in the treatment of various health conditions. Medicines that have limits on the quantity allowed are less than the standard, which is a thirty (30) day supply. For specific medicine limitations, please log in to or call Caremark at 1-866-284-9226. Quantity limits may change periodically based on updates from the FDA’s recommended dosing guidelines.
