Frequently Asked Questions:

Q:  I recently received my new Meritain Health card but it also has CVS Caremark printed on it.  What should I do with my separate Aetna medical insurance card and separate CVS Caremark prescription drug coverage card?
A:  The new Meritain Health card replaces both your Aetna and CVS cards effective July 1, 2022.  You should use your (old) Aetna and CVS cards through June 30, 2022.

Q:  I’m enrolled in the Medical and Prescription Drug Coverage with Meritain Health and CVS Caremark but never received a card?
A:  Look for a plain, white envelope from Meritain Health in your USPS mail which will contain your new cards. Members who transitioned from Aetna to Meritain effective 7/1/22 were issued new cards in mid-June 2022.  

Q:  I have family medical/prescription coverage and only received two cards.  Can I get more?  
A:  You may log in to your Meritain Health member account to view your card online, print it and request additional cards or call customer service.

CRX International - (Inception at Dickinson - May 1, 2014)

Access information for CRX International by visiting, and LOG-IN by entering the Web ID: DICKINSON

COVID-19 UPDATE:  CRX is advising plan participants to use their Canadian address (below) when mailing correspondence to ensure they receive it and reduce delays in processing time.   

235 Eugenie St. W., Suite 105D   
Windsor, ON  Canada  N8X 2X7

In addition, it’s important to remember that all of the medications shipped to members from CRX contracted pharmacies in Canada, Australia and the U.K. are in the original factory sealed package and opened only at their final destination by the patient. Secondly, with a mail order program like CRX, the member receives their medication at their home and does not have to go to their local pharmacy and be in contact with others.

While CRX cannot predict future medication supply issues, they feel their model of issuing a 90-day supply of medication has their clients well-positioned in the event of a shortage. CRX has begun to reach out to patients coming due for refills in advance, and is willing to issue refills up to 30-days early for patients concerned about possible supply shortages.

CRX will continue to monitor the COVID-19 virus and adapt policies that protect the health and safety of both their employees and customers.

CRX is a cost saving international mail order drug program for brand name prescriptions from Tier-1 countries, administered by CRX International.  This is a voluntary and safe program for employees and their dependents on Dickinson's group health plan which does not replace the prescription benefit included with the group health plan.  Participation with CRX International is an opportunity for covered members to take an active role in their healthcare and reduce their out-of-pocket prescription expenses while helping to minimize the overall prescription cost to the Dickinson College group health plan.
