ExtraCare® Health Card Discount Program

ECHC Means More Savings for You

MHBP and CVS/caremark are pleased to make the ExtraCare® Health Card program available to you. This program helps you save money on everyday health-related items. Your ExtraCare Health Card gives you a 20%* savings on CVS pharmacy® brand-items that are health care flexible spending account (HCFSA)-eligible. You can buy these products in store or online at the CVS website.

How it Works

You’ll receive three ExtraCare Health Card key tags by mail for you and your covered family members. Just present the key tag at the drugstore checkout or online and you’ll 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 have 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 gives you all 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 you buy.****

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.

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.
