BlueEssentialsSM

We offer drug coverage with our 2017 BlueEssentials health insurance plans. You can check out our BlueEssentials Covered Drug Tool to see a full list of prescription drugs included.

BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina works with a team of health care providers to choose drugs that provide quality treatment. We cover drugs on the Covered Drug List as long as:

  • The drug is medically necessary
  • Members fill the prescription at one of our network pharmacies
  • Members follow all plan rules

Retail 90

Retail 90 is a product of Caremark, an independent company that offers a pharmacy network and other pharmacy benefit services on behalf of BlueCross.

BlueEssentials members can purchase 90-day supplies of eligible prescription medications at participating retail pharmacies for mail-order prices through our Retail 90 benefit. Saving money on your prescriptions is now as easy as visiting a local pharmacy!
  • Enjoy the same low copays that mail-order programs offer.
  • You don'€™t need to sign up - just ask your pharmacist.
  • Simply drop off and pick up your prescriptions at an in-network pharmacy near you.
Retail 90 benefits are available at any pharmacy in the Advanced Choice network.

Note: Your physician must specify a 90-day supply on the prescription. You cannot fill some medications, including controlled substances, under the Retail 90 program.
