New Benefit for Texas Children’s Employees


Texas Children’s has partnered with our prescription benefits manager, CVS/caremark® to bring an additional benefit to help minimize the impact of rising health care costs to our employees.

Employees enrolled in the Texas Children’s Medical Plan should have received an ExtraCare® Health Card earlier this month. The card provides savings of 20 percent on all CVS/pharmacy® brand health-related items. In addition, two percent back in ExtraBucks® rewards will be awarded when using the ExtraCare Health Card.

That’s a 20 percent savings everyday on thousands of items to help you and your family stay healthy. Think of all the non-prescription items you use on a regular basis in which you can take advantage of these savings, such as:

  • Allergy medicines
  • Cold medicine
  • Eye-Drops
  • First-aid supplies
  • Pain Relievers
  • Vitamins

You can use your card at any CVS/pharmacy® location or online at If you already have an ExtraCare Card from CVS/pharmacy®, you can simply transfer your current rewards online to your new ExtraCare Health Card. Your savings will be automatically deducted off eligible health-care items.
