Our Sharp Direct Advantage CalPERS Plan features a supplemental over-the-counter (OTC) benefit. You can place an order online or over the phone, or you can obtain OTC items directly from select CVS Pharmacy® stores at no added cost. This benefit can help with the cost of necessary health care items that are not covered as a medical or pharmacy expense under your plan. And it can help you save
money on a wide selection of products like pain relievers, cold medications, first aid supplies, dental care and more.

Here are some tips to help you understand how to use your OTC benefit.
Order your OTC items online, over the phone or in select CVS Pharmacy stores.
The fastest, easiest way to access your benefit 24/7 is online. To place an order, you’ll need to log in using your Sharp Health Plan member ID number and ZIP code.
Your order will arrive in 7–14 days. You’ll receive an email with tracking information to confirm your order is placed, when your order has shipped and another email to confirm when your order has been delivered. If an item in our order is
out of stock, you will receive an email notification.
