Out-of-network pharmacy coverage
Generally, we only cover drugs filled at an out-of-network pharmacy in limited circumstances when a network pharmacy is not available. In this situation you may have to pay the full cost when you fill your prescription. Before you fill a prescription at an out-of-network pharmacy, please call Member Service to see if there is a network pharmacy available. For more information about what situations we will cover prescriptions that are filled at out-of-network pharmacy and how to file a claim, please refer to the Disclosure Form and Evidence of Coverage.

Mail order services
You can use our Plan's network mail-order pharmacy service to fill prescriptions for what we call "mail order drugs" / "maintenance drugs". These are drugs that you take on a regular basis, for a chronic or long-term medical condition. Maintenance medications are those medicines that are taken regularly for medical conditions like high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol. This does not include allergy medications such as antihistamines, antibiotics or medications for pain.
To set up mail order services call Walgreen's at 1-800-635-3070 or register through their web site at www.WalgreensHealth.com.
You are not required to use our mail order services to get an extended supply of maintenance medications. You can also obtain an extended supply through some retail network pharmacies.
