Analysis of Inventory
Inventory Accounting Policy
Inventories are stated at the lower of weighted average cost or market. Physical inventory counts are taken on a regular basis in each retail store and long-term care 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.
