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.

90-Day Supply For Maintenance Medications:
If you or your family member takes a maintenance medication, you are required to get your maintenance prescriptions as 90-day fills. You can get your first 30-day fill of a new medication at any participating pharmacy. After that, your two choices are:
- Receive your medication through the CVS Caremark mail-order pharmacy, or
- Fill your medication at a pharmacy that participates in the State’s Maintenance Drug Network (see the list of participating pharmacies).
To request an exemption to continue receive 30 days’ supply, have your provider complete the Mandatory Mail Exception form.
