How Can I Find a Pharmacy to Fill My Prescription?
Just like when you need medical care, your costs are lower when you go to a pharmacy that takes your insurance.
You're responsible only for your prescription drug copay, coinsurance or deductible. Compared to paying the full cost of your medication at an out-of-network pharmacy, that's a big savings.
Finding a pharmacy that participates with us is easy. That's because many pharmacies are in our network: more than 2,300 in Michigan and 65,000 nationwide. That includes most major chains.
But if one isn't right around the corner and you need information, that's pretty easy too.
If you're a member you can find the most accurate results for your specific plan and benefits by logging in to your member account, using the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan mobile app or calling the number on the back of your member ID card.
You may save time and money on your prescription drugs by getting a 90-day supply, also called a maintenance supply.
Most pharmacies provide 90-day supplies and refills, but not all. If you want to be sure:
Refer to your prescription drug benefit information to verify your 90-day retail pharmacy coverage of maintenance drugs.
Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan and Blue Care Network members enrolled in the Exclusive Specialty Pharmacy Program should use AllianceRx Walgreen Pharmacy mail-order pharmacy or Walgreens retail stores to fill specialty drug prescriptions. Other pharmacies are considered out-of-network for specialty drugs.
Members who aren’t enrolled in the Exclusive Specialty Pharmacy Program can fill most specialty drugs at any in-network retail pharmacies, by home delivery through AllianceRx Walgreen Pharmacy or at participating specialty pharmacies.
Some limited distribution specialty drugs aren't available through AllianceRx Walgreen Pharmacy and must be ordered and delivered by mail from specific pharmacies that carry those drugs.
Use the Specialty Drug Program Rx Benefit Member Guide (PDF) to look up your specialty or limited distribution drug and find out where and how to fill your prescription.
Refer to your prescription drug benefit information to verify your specialty drug coverage.
If you have to pay for a prescription yourself because you couldn't find an in-network pharmacy, you can ask us to reimburse you using a claim form. You can find the one you need in our prescription drug forms section.
