UMWA Health and Retirement Funds

Mail Order Program

Save time and Money with Mail Service Use!

Thousands of the Funds’ beneficiaries love the value and convenience of the mail service for obtaining refills of maintenance prescriptions. Maintenance prescriptions are those prescriptions used every day for treatment of chronic, ongoing conditions. Examples include blood pressure and diabetes medications.

Use of mail service saves money for the Funds and signing up is easy.  Call CVS Caremark FastStart toll-free at 1-800-294-4741 to transfer your maintenance prescriptions to mail order.  If you would prefer not to call the FastStart number, you may submit your information using the mail service paper form (see forms). Doctors may fax a prescription to CVS Caremark Mail Service Pharmacy at 1-877-278-0328. Maintenance medications should be prescribed for a 90-day quantity with 3 refills.

For more information: email health1@umwafunds.org or call the Funds’ Call Center at 1-800-291-1425

UMWA President Cecil Roberts supports mail service.

Funds beneficiaries comment on the pharmacy mail service:

  • “I always get them on time, when they say so.”
  • “We were surprised at how fast our medications were delivered after we sent in our prescription for the first time.”
  • “The bottles are easy to open. The letters on the prescription labels are easy to see and read.”
  • “CVS Caremark pharmacists are very nice. They treat me like family.”
