Drugs covered by Blue Cross MedicareRx plans are listed in formularies. Each plan has its own drug list that includes generic and brand name drugs. The list also provides information about drug copays and limitations, such as prior authorization, quantity limits and step therapy.
Drug lists can change. Normally, any changes in the drug list are reflected in the list at the beginning of each year. However, during the year, we might make other changes that are allowed by Medicare rules. We will provide you with advance notice of these changes.
