Date:5/24/2011

WOONSOCKET, R.I., May 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- CVS Caremark today outlined the results of an innovative, personalized consumer communications program designed to encourage patients to take their medications as doctors direct. Early results of the program show increases in consumers signing up for automatic prescription refills and more readily substituting generic medications for brand medicines to lower costs.
