CVS awarded $3 billion federal employee health benefit contract

New York City -- CVS Caremark Corp. won a $3 billion contract to provide pharmacy benefits to federal employees.

The contract has been handled by pharmacy benefits manager Medco Health Solutions since 2008. Medco disclosed on Friday that Blue Cross Blue Shield Association would not renew a contract that saw Medco handle mail order and specialty drug benefits for the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program, which provides health insurance to federal government employees, retirees, and their families.

Caremark has handled FEP's retail pharmacy benefit since 1993, and it said that contract was renewed through 2014.
