WOONSOCKET, R.I., 2016-Jun-25 — /EPR Retail News/ — MinuteClinic, the retail medical clinic of CVS Health, has opened six new locations inside Target stores in South Florida. The clinics located in stores in Boynton Beach, Davie, Deerfield Beach,Miami and West Palm Beach have been rebranded and converted to MinuteClinic. There are now 28 MinuteClinic locations in South Florida, including clinics in select CVS Pharmacy stores and Navarro Discount Pharmacy.

“The new MinuteClinic locations inside Target will offer the same scope of services available to patients at all our other clinics in Florida and nationwide,” said Andrew Sussman, M.D., President of MinuteClinic, and Executive Vice President and Associate Chief Medical Officer of CVS Health. “In addition, some services will be new to Target guests, including treatment for minor sprains and strains, contraceptive care and smoking cessation counseling.”

MinuteClinic is open seven days a week and no appointment is necessary. Most major health insurance is accepted. For patients paying cash or credit, treatment prices are posted at each clinic and at www.minuteclinic.com.

Nurse practitioners at MinuteClinic specialize in family health care and can diagnose, treat and write prescriptions for common family illnesses such as strep throat; ear, eye, sinus, bladder and bronchial infections; nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and indigestion.

With the new MinuteClinic in Target locations, Sussman says MinuteClinic can continue to play a complementary role in working with primary care providers.

These programs are available to all patients, regardless of their health insurance carrier.

In addition, Pharmacy Advisor, a program in which CVS Caremark plan members diagnosed with chronic conditions receive face-to-face counseling when they choose to fill prescriptions at CVS Pharmacy or by phone when they choose mail service pharmacy, will be available by the end of 2016.

“As we roll out the new CVS Pharmacy in Target locations, we are working closely with patients to make their transition to our services and programs as simple and seamless as possible,” added Caskey.

Patients at CVS Pharmacy in Target now have access to convenient and easy-to-use digital tools, such as the CVS Pharmacy app and CVS.com, to help them manage their prescriptions and stay on track with their medications. Patients who utilize CVS Pharmacy’s digital offerings are also able to scan their pill bottles to order refills of their prescriptions and receive medication reminders while benefiting from easier in-store pickup. CVS Pharmacy’s leading ExtraCare loyalty program and the opt-in ExtraCare Pharmacy & Health Rewards will allow patients to earn $5 in ExtraBucks Rewards for every 10 prescriptions filled. Patients can also earn rewards for the other things they do to stay healthy, like getting immunizations or choosing email refill reminders.

CVS Pharmacy is committed to giving back to the communities where its colleagues live and work. The company has extended that commitment to Colorado with a$50,000 donation to Children’s Hospital Colorado. The funding will be used to support the mission of Children’s Colorado, which is devoted to the health and well-being of children, along with the hospital’s medical, research, education and advocacy programs.

“We congratulate CVS Pharmacy on its expansion into Colorado’s Target stores and are thrilled to have such a committed new community partner join us in our mission to transform child health,” said Cary Larger, senior vice president, community fundraising, Children’s Hospital Colorado Foundation.

In December 2015, CVS Health acquired all Target pharmacies and retail clinics across 47 states. All of the pharmacies and clinics have now been converted to CVS Pharmacy and MinuteClinic. In addition, a CVS Pharmacy will be included in all new Target stores that offer pharmacy services and Target clinic locations will be rebranded as MinuteClinic over the next few months. The acquisition expands CVS Health’s pharmacy footprint by approximately 20 percent and its clinic footprint by about 8 percent. CVS Health now has a presence in every state.
