Custom Select Drug List
Use the Custom Select Drug List (PDF) when prescribing medications for members who have small group or individual health plans that began on or after Jan. 1, 2014. These are plans that meet the requirements of the Affordable Care Act.
The Custom Select drug list provides lower cost options for our members. Use this list for both Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan and Blue Care Network members. The list is grouped into tiers, starting with the least expensive drugs in the lowest tier.
Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan PPO plans classify all generic drugs as Tier 1. Blue Care Network HMO plans group generic drugs into two tiers. Tier 1A Value-Preferred Generics have the lowest copays. Tier 1B Generics have a higher copay. We encourage physicians to prescribe preferred medications whenever possible.
The Custom Select drug list is updated every month.
