WOONSOCKET, R.I. (WXYZ) — CVS Pharmacy announced this week that it will waive delivery fees for prescription medications amid the coronavirus outbreak.

"Being committed to the welfare of those we serve means being responsive to evolving needs and acting swiftly. This is particularly true in times of uncertainty," said Troyen Brennan, M.D., M.P.H., Executive Vice President and Chief Medical Officer, CVS Health. "The latest steps we're taking will help ensure patients of all ages have every option available to them when it comes to filling prescriptions."

The move follows the company also announcing that all COVID-19 testing and telemedicine visits are available with no co-pay, and Aetna, a CVS Health company, will offer 90-day maintenance medication prescriptions for insured and Medicare members.
