Pharmacy Information

Weight Loss Medications:

Starting July 1, 2023, medications prescribed for weight loss or weight management will only be covered if they are prescribed by a Flyte physician. Flyte is a medical weight loss program offered to eligible State health plan members and their adult dependents. Eligibility requires being 18 years or older, having a BMI of 30 or higher, or a BMI of 27 with one weight-related condition (i.e., diabetes, heart disease, sleep apnea, etc.). Check your BMI.

If your prescription was written before June 30, 2023, you will be able to continue with refills as prescribed by your provider.

You can learn more about the Flyte medically supervised weight loss program by reviewing the FAQs, calling a Care Coordinator at 833-740-3258 or visiting the Flyte website.

Medications Denial Information:

If your Weight Management Medication was denied at the pharmacy, common reasons are:

  1. A state approved Flyte provider did not prescribe this medication. Please enroll by visiting and filling out the application.
  2. The Prior Authorization has not yet been processed. Please wait 5 business days and then call your pharmacy to attempt processing again. We do not recommend going to your pharmacy directly as there may be other issues delaying processing.
  3. Refill too soon. You may be attempting to refill a prescription before you can. Please check your prescription label for the number of refills allowed and how long your supply should last before attempting to refill.

If these situations do not apply to you, please contact Caremark at 800-318-2572 for assistance.
