ExtraCare® Health Card

ECHC Means More Savings for You
MHBP and CVS/caremark are pleased to make the ExtraCare® Health Card program available to you.  This valuable program helps you save money on everyday health-related items.  Your ExtraCare Health Card provides a 20%* savings  on CVS/pharmacy® brand-items that are health care flexible spending account (HCFSA)-eligible.  These products can be purchased in store or online at www.CVS.com.

How it Works
You are provided with three ExtraCare Health Card key tags by mail that can be used by you and your covered spouse and dependents.  Just present the key tag at the drugstore checkout or online and automatically receive 20% off your eligible items.  A summary of your savings will appear on your receipt.  For your convenience, CVS has over 6,300 pharmacy locations nationwide.

Get Quality and Savings
The ExtraCare Health Card provides 20% savings on the health-related items you and your family use most, from cough and cold remedies to pain and allergy relief products.  CVS/pharmacy brands contain the same active ingredients and are of high quality like national brands, but cost much less.  With the ExtraCare Health Card, you can save up to 40%**  on these items compared to national brands.  Please note: the discount does not apply to prescriptions, vitamins, nutritional supplements and non-health-related items.

Added Bonus to the CVS ExtraCare Card
If you already have a CVS ExtraCare card, the ExtraCare Health Card will replace it and enhance your rewards.  Using the ExtraCare Health Card entitles you to all of the benefits of the ExtraCare rewards card--you get the 20% discount plus you will earn 2% in Extra Bucks® on non-prescription purchases***  and one Extra Buck™ for every two prescriptions purchased.****

For more information about the ExtraCare Health Card, or to transfer your ExtraCare reward card balance to your ExtraCare Health Card, call the toll-free number on the back of your card.

*The 20% discount is restricted to items purchased for the cardholder, spouse or dependents.  A health care flexible spending arrangement (HCFSA) allows you to contribute pre-tax earnings toward your out-of-pocket medical expenses.  The FSA summary on your receipt includes the items (and tax) that may be eligible for reimbursement from your HCFSA/HRA/HSA plan.  Plan restrictions may apply. Check with your health plan sponsor for more details.

This discount program is neither offered nor guaranteed under the FEHB program, but is made available to all MHBP enrollees and their covered family members.  You cannot file a FEHB disputed claim about this program.  The non-prescription items you purchase do not count toward any FEHB deductibles or catastrophic protection out-of-pocket maximums.
