Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona (BCBSAZ) works with Medicare to offer a stand-alone prescription drug plan with two coverage options and premiums to best meet your needs. Our plans provide additional protection against health costs by covering prescription drugs. Our members have access to a national network of pharmacies, so you're covered at home and when traveling within the United States.
Why Blue MedicareRx?
Blue Cross and Blue Shield has worked with Medicare for many years
We know what it takes to work with government processes and succeed. Blue MedicareRx plan options have features that beneficiaries may find attractive for different reasons, including low premium, $0 copays, no deductible, and extra gap coverage.
Members can appreciate how easy our plans are to use. They have the same pharmacy network that includes the major chains across the United States and many independent pharmacies. Our plans also include pharmacies with preferred cost sharing where costs may be lower.
Pharmacy benefits through CVS Caremark
Once enrolled in Blue MedicareRx, you’ll have access to a nationwide network of pharmacies that include major chains as well as neighborhood pharmacies. You may go to any of our network pharmacies. However, your costs may be even less for your covered drugs if you use a network pharmacy that offers preferred cost sharing rather than a network that offers standard cost sharing.
In most cases, your prescriptions are covered only if they are filled at one of our network pharmacies. If you go to a pharmacy that is not in our network, you may have to pay more for your prescriptions and you may have to file a claim to be reimbursed. You will pay any difference between the non-network pharmacy’s charge and the amount the plan allows.
Fall Annual Enrollment Period
Each year from October 15 to December 7, you can change your Medicare plan.
