Medications and drug formulary

Each Medicare drug plan has its own formulary (a list of covered prescription drugs).

We select covered drugs based on their cl inical effectiveness, safety and cost savings. Blue Care Network will generally cover drugs listed in our formulary as long as the drug is medically necessary, the prescription is filled at a BCN AdvantageSM network pharmacy and other plan rules are followed.

Additional information

Generally, if you are taking a drug on our formulary that was covered at the beginning of the year, we will not discontinue or reduce coverage of the drug during the benefit year except when a new, less expensive generic drug becomes available or when new harmful information about the safety or effectiveness of a drug is released. Other types of formulary changes, such as removing a drug from our formulary, will not affect members who are currently taking the drug. It will remain available to you for the remainder of the benefit year. We feel it is important that you have continued access for the remainder of the benefit year to the formulary drugs that were available when you chose our plan, except for cases in which you can save additional money or we can ensure your safety. For more information, see your Evidence of Coverage.
