More than 28 million patient visits have taken place at MinuteClinic since its inception, and our physicians assistants and nurse practitioners continue to provide high-quality, cost-effective care.
The nation’s largest operator of retail clinics has long been a convenient, cost-effective option for the treatment of strep throat, ear infections, and other common family ailments. Typically found inside CVS Pharmacy stores—and now in select Target locations—MinuteClinic is open seven days a week with no appointment required. More than 250 insurance carriers, offering multiple plans nationwide, now cover its visits in-network. The adoption of the Epic electronic health record platform has accelerated the expansion of the MinuteClinic scope of services. MinuteClinic now treats a broader range of acute conditions, adding 11 such conditions over the past year alone, including gastrointestinal illness and musculoskeletal pain. Through affiliations with 63 major health systems, MinuteClinic also provides access to clinical support, chronic disease monitoring, and wellness programs. As one of the many CVS Health integrated offerings, clients have increasingly incorporated MinuteClinic into their CVS Caremark plan designs. The result has been improved health care access for members and lower costs for clients.
