  5. Prescription Drugs
    CalCPA Health is encouraging everyone to convert their prescriptions to mail order, to reduce exposure by visiting pharmacies and to save member cost (mail order copays and drug costs are less than retail pharmacies). A retail prescription can be changed over to mail with a few clicks on the Express Scripts web site or app. Doctors can also electronically write new prescriptions directly to the mail order pharmacy.
    For those with a need for an early refill or 90‐day supply at the retail pharmacy CalCPA Health has authorized pharmacists to provide this service. Many drugs are excluded from this program due to state/federal laws and supply, so check with your pharmacist.

  1. Online Doctor Visits – LiveHealth Online Reminder: Your CalCPA Health plan includes access to LiveHealth Online doctors. The available online services have recently expanded, if you have a medical need that is covered by this program, it may be a good way to obtain medical services during this time. Visit or download the app to get registered.
  2. Covid-19 tests: If you have symptoms and/or believe you were exposed, you should call your doctor for instructions on how to proceed. Our understanding is medical facilities are requesting people not just show up; calling ahead allows your provider to guide you to the appropriate care without risking exposure to others in the waiting room. At this writing, tests are available through a doctor in accordance with current federal guidelines.
  3. Prescription Drugs: For most on‐going prescriptions you can save the trip to the pharmacy (and money) by using the home delivery service. It is typically easy to change a retail Rx over to home delivery with a few clicks on the app or website.

CalCPA Health is committed to providing your health‐care and health insurance needs during these unprecedented times. COVID‐19 information is very fluid, timely updates are available at
