Save Money with a Preferred Pharmacy

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

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

Some plans may also include a preferred pharmacy network.* When you choose a preferred 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.

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 listed on your Member ID card.

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

  • Finally a cure for diabetes exists. It's not a pharmaceutical drug, but a very safe all natural herbal product that restores your body's own ability to naturally control it's own blood glucose levels back to normal. I have been battling with diabetes type 2 for 12 years now, before a friend lead me to DR WATER. I went on to give it a try. I provided him with all he needed. And a few days later, I received a call from UPS to come collect some herbal products from DR WATER. I can't believe that after using those herbal products, I was healed and I can not stop telling people about this experience. When I went to the hospital for check up, my doctor was surprised and he even ask for DR WATER's email DRWATERHIVCURECENTRE@GMAIL.COM, which i gave to him. This indeed is a genuine solution to Diabetes that I am sharing here, not those very costly medical treatment or a life-long use of diabetic supplements. If you need this herbal product, contact him now. His Whatsapp is : +2349050205019
