Specialty Pharmacy Changes: Effective November 11, 2013, our preferred specialty pharmacy, CuraScript Specialty Pharmacy, will have a new name. CuraScript is an independent company that provides specialty pharmacy services on behalf of BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina. The name change is a result of a merger with another specialty pharmacy, Accredo Health Services. The new company will go by the name Accredo. If you have a patient who is currently taking a drug supplied by CuraScript, you don’t have to do anything! The prescription should be seamlessly transferred. Accredo will help your patient get their prescriptions filled in the same way they always have.
Some of our plans provide a different level of coverage for drugs on our Specialty Drug List. With some plans, members must use Accredo Specialty Pharmacy, our preferred specialty pharmacy vendor. Some specialty drugs require prior authorization. To request prior authorization, call Care Continuum at 866-544-0857. Care Continuum is an independent company that administers prior authorizations for specialty medications on behalf of BlueCross.
