"CVS/pharmacy's new prescription Order Ready Text Messaging Program allows for easy prescription pick-up by letting our patients know the moment the pharmacist has completed their order," said Rob Price, Senior Vice President, Chief Marketing Officer for CVS/pharmacy.  "The introduction of prescription text alerts is the latest addition to our enhanced mobile offering and is designed to make filling prescriptions at CVS/pharmacy even more convenient."

Customers can sign up to receive text messages by speaking to a pharmacy staff member at their local CVS/pharmacy. Once enrolled, customers will receive their first Order Ready Text Message when their next prescription has been filled.
