CVS Health offers Longs Drugs consumers tips in wake of hurricane

CVS Health has issued several reminders to Longs Drugs consumers and patients in the wake of Hurricane Lane approaching Hawaii.

"The health and safety of our customers, patients and colleagues are most important to us," Kevin Hourican, EVP, CVS Health and president, CVS Pharmacy, said. "In light of weather advisories and local warnings in effect in Hawaii, we're working hard to ensure that our customers have the medications they need to ride out the storm safely."

The Woonsocket, R.I.-based company operates the retailer in the state, who has been reaching out to patients via text messages and email to remind them to refill their prescriptions in advance.

In addition, through CVS Caremark, the company has activated a process that allows it to provide a one-time emergency refill of a 10-day supply of medication for plan members in impacted areas.

Longs Drugs also has been stocking its stores with emergency items such as bottled water, batteries, flashlights and first aid supplies. The retailer also is remind consumers that it can fill prescriptions at any of its 70 locations across Hawaii, and to store all medications along with a written record of current prescriptions in a waterproof container.
