Blue MedicareRx (PDP) 2017

Your choice for drug coverage

Prescription drugs can be expensive. Blue MedicareRx is a Part D Prescription Drug Plan designed to help you manage your drug costs. Even if you don’t have drug costs now, this plan can protect you from the expense of prescription drugs you may need in the future.

Blue MedicareRx offers you:

Choose from two plan options

We offer Two plan options — Value and Enhanced. Each option includes catastrophic coverage that helps protect against high drug costs after you have spent a certain amount on prescription drugs.

See below to compare our two options at each coverage stage.

Blue MedicareRx Plan Comparison

1 Your “total drug costs” means the total amount you have paid for covered drugs plus what the plan has paid for the calendar year. This does not include the plan premium you pay.
2 Your “out-of-pocket costs” means the amount you have paid for covered drugs for the calendar year. This does not include the amount the plan has paid or the plan premium you pay.

Place your order for printed materials, including enrollment kits for these and other BCBSAZ plans. Orders are mailed free of charge.

Use our pharmacy network for the greatest benefits

Once enrolled, you’ll have access to more than 67,000* network pharmacies including 36,000 that offer preferred cost sharing. These are major chains such as CVS/pharmacy, Wal-Mart and Walgreens, as well as many neighborhood pharmacies. Using a pharmacy in our network reduces your costs and your claims will be filed for you.

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. Some drugs may have quantity limits or other restrictions that apply.

Letters and phone calls once you join our plan

When you join the Blue MedicareRx plan you may receive an occasional phone call from the plan. The first phone call will occur shortly after your enrollment application is received by the plan. Its purpose is to welcome you to the plan, describe how the plan works and answer any questions you may have. You may occasionally receive other calls from the plan. For example, if you have other prescription drug coverage, you may receive a call asking that you verify your other coverage so that Medicare can coordinate your benefits with your other plan coverage.

You will receive a letter from the plan shortly after your enrollment application is received if an agent helped with your enrollment. Its purpose is to make sure you are enrolled in the correct plan, describe how the plan works and answer any questions you may have.

If you have any questions about a phone call you receive from the plan, please call 1-877-853-7693 (TTY hearing impaired users call 711), 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., daily, local time.
