MINNEAPOLIS — MinuteClinic, the retail health clinic subsidiary of CVS Caremark Corp., has become a participating provider with health insurer Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Oklahoma.

The company said Tuesday that members of the health plan will now have access to MinuteClinics inside select CVS/pharmacy stores in the Oklahoma City market.

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Oklahoma provides health care benefit plans for more than 600,000 Oklahomans.

"This is an important development in the growth of our business in Oklahoma as we expand access to care to thousands of new customers," MinuteClinic president and chief operating officer Andrew Sussman said in a statement. "By offering high quality treatment in a convenient setting, we can work with Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Oklahoma to help reduce health care insurance expenses for its members as well as time spent away from members’ families and the workplace."

In Oklahoma, MinuteClinics are open seven days a week with extended weekday evening hours, and no appointment is necessary, the company said. MinuteClinic has about 500 locations in 25 states.
