Dispensing 100 million scripts annually, Omnicare is the leading pharmacy provider to the elderly in chronic care settings.
Aging comes with its share of challenges, and the U.S. over-65 population is rising steadily. CVS Health has long served seniors through our retail pharmacy network, our SilverScript Medicare Part D prescription drug plan, and with our unmatched specialty solutions, to name just a few examples. With the 2015 acquisition of Omnicare, we now provide seniors with pharmacy services even further along the continuum of care. Roughly 70 percent will eventually require some form of long-term care service and support. Omnicare is the market leader among skilled nursing and assisted living facilities, with a reputation for robust clinical services that drive better outcomes. Together, CVS Health and Omnicare can leverage clinical insights to take pharmacy care for this vulnerable population to the next level. Our integrated solutions will address the unmet needs of patients in skilled nursing, assisted living, independent living, and home settings. And since 80 percent of the residents that Omnicare serves live within five miles of a CVS Pharmacy, getting access to the medications they need has never been easier.
