ings, to help perform safety checks, drug interaction screening and identify opportunities for generic substitution. Pharmacy Services Seasonality: The company’s quarterly earnings and operating cash flows are impacted by the Medicare Part D benefit design and changes in the composition of its membership. The Medicare Part D standard benefit design results in coverage that varies with a member's cumulative annual out-of-pocket costs. The benefit design generally results in plan sponsors sharing a greater portion of the responsibility for total prescription drug costs in the early part of the year. As a result, the PDP plan pay percentage or benefit ratio generally decreases and operating profit generally increases as the year progresses. Pharmacy Services Competition: The Pharmacy Services Segment has a significant number of competitors offering PBM services (Express Scripts, OptumRx, Catamaran, Prime Therapeutics, MedImpact and Humana) including large, national PBM companies, PBMs owned by large national health plans and smaller PBMs. Retail Pharmacy As of December 31, 2014, the segment included 7,822 retail drugstores, of which 7,765 operated a pharmacy, its online retail pharmacy Websites,, and, 17 onsite pharmacy stores and its retail health care clinics. The retail drugstores are located in 44 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and Brazil operating primarily under the CVS/pharmacy, CVS, Longs Drugs, Navarro Discount Pharmacy and Drogaria Onofre names. The Retail Pharmacy segment sells prescription drugs and an assortment of over-the-counter and personal care products, beauty and cosmetic products, and general merchandise, which it refers to as front store products. Existing retail stores range in size from approximately 5,000 to 30,000 square feet, although most new stores range in size from approximately 8,000 to 13,000 square feet and typically include a drive-thru pharmacy. During 2014, the company filled 756 million retail prescriptions (counting 90-day prescriptions as 1 prescription), or approximately 21% of the United States retail pharmacy market. Retail Pharmacy Business Strategy: The company’s integrated pharmacy services model has enhanced the ability of its retail pharmacy stores to expand customer access. The company’s customer-driven personalization through ExtraCare, ExtraCare Beauty Club and MyWeeklyAd are designed to help it connect directly with individual consumers to deliver a personalized experience. Retail Pharmacy Products and Services: The company purchases its merchandise from various manufacturers and distributors. Pharmacy: The company’s Patient Care Initiative, an enhanced medication adherence program; Maintenance Choice, a program where eligible client plan members can elect to fill their maintenance prescriptions at its retail pharmacy stores for the same price as mail order; and Pharmacy Advisor, its program that facilitates pharmacist counseling, both face-to-face and over the telephone, to help participating plan members with certain chronic diseases, such as diabetes and cardiovascular conditions, to identify gaps in care, adhere to their prescribed medications and manage their health conditions; as well as Specialty Connect, its integrated specialty pharmacy offering that began in 2014, which integrates specialty mail and retail capabilities, providing members with disease-state specific counseling from its experienced specialty pharmacists and the choice to bring their specialty prescriptions to a CVS/pharmacy location or submit it through its specialty mail order pharmacies. Evidencing the company’s belief in the importance of pharmacy service is its continuing investment in technology, such as its Drug Utilization Review system that helps check for harmful interactions between prescription drugs and patient identified over-the-counter products, vitamins and herbal remedies; its proprietary pharmacy system that integrates its product delivery and clinical workflows, as well as advanced patient safety functionality, such as drug utilization review, Rx Connect; its prescription refill program, ReadyFill; and its
