Specialty Pharmacy Services


Florida Health is working with a specialty pharmacy to enhance the way our uninsured clients receive their medications. This change will not affect all clients. However, clients who are affected need to be aware of what’s changing.

Uninsured ADAP clients who receive medication services in these counties will not be affected:
  • Broward
  • Duval
  • Hillsborough
  • Miami-Dade (except for clients served by West Perrine Clinic)
  • Sarasota

If you don’t receive services in one of the above areas, please keep reading.

Not sure if this change affects you? Please call the ADAP Central Office at (844) 381-2327.

What is changing?
Florida Health will be transferring ADAP prescriptions for some uninsured clients to CVS Specialty Pharmacy.CVS Specialty logo

What is CVS Specialty Pharmacy?
CVS Specialty Pharmacy is not a local CVS store. It is a mail-order pharmacy located in Pennsylvania. ADAP prescriptions will be filled at this pharmacy and sent to a location of the client’s choosing (see below).

When will this happen?
We plan to have the transition implemented by August 19, 2019. More information will be coming. Please keep an eye on this page for updates.

What do you need to do?
Please check with your local ADAP office to make sure your information is up to date. You’ll also need to update your communication choices to allow Florida Health and CVS Specialty Pharmacy to contact you by phone.

After the transition, CVS Specialty Pharmacy will contact you to ask how you would like to receive your medications. You can choose to:
  • Have your medications delivered to your home or other address.
  • Pick up your medications at a CVS retail store during their normal business hours.
  • Pick up your medications from your county health department during their normal business hours.
More information is coming soon. If you have questions or concerns, please call the ADAP Central Office at (844) 381-2327.
