For Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan members (Traditional and PPO)

  • If your brand name prescription drug is on our Generic Copay Waiver list (PDF), and your doctor says you can switch to generic, we’ll waive the copay for your first month’s supply.

For Blue Care Network (HMO) members

  • We’ve reduced the copay for select medications used, mainly to control asthma, to the lowest, or Tier 1, copay. For example, a member may have a drug rider with a $40 copay for formulary preferred (Tier 2) drugs and a $10 copay for Tier 1 drugs (mostly generics). The member will pay just $10 for these brand-name controllers.
