Over-the-Counter Benefits

Benefit Overview

Wellcare By Fidelis Care offers members a pre-paid account that is replenished monthly (check your Evidence of Coverage document to determine if you qualify).  Your account can be used to purchase over-the-counter (OTC) eligible items that help treat injuries or illness. You can use this card to purchase non-prescription, over-the-counter drugs and many common health-related items at local pharmacies, including CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid, and Duane Reade, without having to submit a receipt.

OTC items may only be purchased by you for your own personal use. The dollar benefit amount is automatically replenished each month. Any unused dollars at the end of the month are not rolled over and cannot be used in following months. Examples of what can be purchased using your pre-paid debit card are Acetaminophen (Tylenol), antacids, and topical antibiotics.
