Analysis of Inventory

Difficulty: Advanced


Inventory Accounting Policy

Inventories are valued at the lower of cost or net realizable value using the weighted average cost method. Physical inventory counts are taken on a regular basis in each retail store and LTC pharmacy and a continuous cycle count process is the primary procedure used to validate the inventory balances on hand in each distribution center and mail facility to ensure that the amounts reflected in the accompanying consolidated financial statements are properly stated. During the interim period between physical inventory counts, CVS Health accrues for anticipated physical inventory losses on a location-by-location basis based on historical results and current trends.
