Save Money with a Value Pharmacy

Save Money with a Value Pharmacy

Did you know your health plan may offer a value pharmacy network? By using a value pharmacy, you may pay the lowest out of pocket cost on covered prescription drugs.

With your Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Montana prescription drug plan, you save money if you use a pharmacy in the network.

Some plans may also include a value pharmacy network.* When you choose a value pharmacy, you may save the most money when you fill  your covered prescriptions at these locations. You can also fill up to a 90-day supply of many covered drugs in the store or through home delivery.

Value Pharmacy Network

Whether you are at home, the office or on the go, you can find your value pharmacy network locations on MyPrime.com

Additional Information

Remember, not all pharmacies are in your health plan’s pharmacy network. Please note changes to the pharmacies may be made in the future.

Before you choose the closest one to you, find out if it is in your network. If it isn’t, you may want to go a little further to get your prescriptions filled. Your out-of-pocket costs are highest when you choose an out-of-network pharmacy.

In fact, some plans don’t provide out-of-network pharmacy benefits. You may end up paying the full cost for your prescriptions.

Check your benefits to see if you have a preferred pharmacy network. You can also call the Customer Service number on your Member ID card.

*Value Pharmacy Network pricing isn’t available for 100% cost-sharing plans.
