Drug Information

Blue Cross Medicare Advantage
Print

Prescription drug coverage is built into Blue Cross Medicare AdvantageSM Plans and Lovelace Medicare Plans. The drug list, also called a formulary, includes both brand name and generic drugs. It will also tell you:

  • About your drug's co-payment
  • Whether limitations to coverage exist like:
    • Prior authorization
    • Quantity limits
    • Step therapy

Generic drugs:


You may save money by switching from brand drugs to generic drugs. These drugs:

  • Have the same active ingredient formula as brand name drugs
  • Usually cost less than brand name drugs
  • Are rated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to be as safe and effective as brand name drugs

Keep in mind, to receive your full pharmacy benefits, you should use:

  • For Blue Cross Advantage Medicare Plans (not including Lovelace Medicare Plan), you must use Blue Cross Medicare Advantage network pharmacies, and/or our home delivery pharmacy service, Primemail®* (except in an emergency). Using an out-of-network pharmacy may result in less than full reimbursement for out-of-pocket costs. A preferred pharmacy may result in lower member out-of-pocket cost.
  • For Lovelace Medicare Plans, you must use Blue Cross Medicare Advantage network pharmacies, and/or our mail-order service, Express Scripts®† (except in an emergency). Using an out-of-network pharmacy may result in less than full reimbursement for out-of-pocket costs.
