We're here to answer your questions.

Where can I find a pharmacy in my network?

Who is this for?

Learn how to find a pharmacy in your Medicare plan's network.

If you need to fill a prescription, we'll help you find a pharmacy in your network so you can save on costs.

Using a network pharmacy* is important. You’ll pay more for your prescription drugs if you go to an out-of-network pharmacy. When you're a Medicare Advantage or Prescription Blue℠ PDP member, you have access to 98 percent** of pharmacies in Michigan.

Find a pharmacy

Our online pharmacy directory is updated more frequently than our printed directories, so it's the best way to see if a pharmacy is in your plan's network. 

Just enter your ZIP code to see network pharmacies near you. It's a good idea to call the pharmacy first to make sure they're still in our network.

If you’re already a member, you can log in to your online account to use the pharmacy directory. Don't have an account? Sign up here.

Find a preferred pharmacy

To fill your 90-day supply prescriptions, find a preferred pharmacy (PDF). The 90-day preferred network includes independent and chain pharmacies such as: Costco, CVS, Kmart, Kroger, Meijer, Rite Aid, Target and Walgreens. Learn more about preferred pharmacies.

Ask your local pharmacy

Are you new to Medicare? Did you change your Medicare plan? If you already have a pharmacy that's filled your prescriptions in the past, give them a call. Tell them the name of your new plan and ask them if they're in our network. It's a good idea to do this before you need a prescription filled.

Do you get 90-day refills of your prescription? Want to save money? If your pharmacy is in our network, ask them if they're a preferred pharmacy. That means they'll give you a discount on your copay for a 90-day refill. 

BCN Advantage members

BCN Advantage members with group coverage don’t have preferred pharmacies as part of their pharmacy network. Look in your group’s prescription drug rider for 90-day drug refill costs.

You'll see pharmacies in our directory that are outside the BCN Advantage service area. You may also fill your prescriptions at these pharmacies.

Using a mail-order pharmacy

You can get prescriptions delivered to your home through Express Scripts® and Walgreens Mail Service. This option is available with all our Medicare Advantage and Prescription Blue PDP plans. How can I get mail-order prescription services? explains how to get started.

Tip: Going on vacation outside of Michigan? Have a business trip planned? Be prepared in case you need to visit the pharmacy by reading How can I get my prescription filled when traveling?

* The pharmacy network may change at any time. You will receive notice when necessary.
