Group prescription drug plans with nationwide coverage

Plans for 2019

Blue Cross and Blue Shield has been helping employer and union groups with Medicare solutions for decades. Our group plans are available to employer and union groups that are headquartered in Iowa, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota or Wyoming, but your retirees can live anywhere within the U.S.

Group MedicareBlue Rx is available as a stand-alone solution or it can be offered as an add-on to retiree medical coverage. We offer:

  • Fully-insured plans that limit liability and risk exposure
  • Flexible payment opportunities to help manage costs
  • Five standard benefit designs
  • Access to a nationwide pharmacy network
  • Choices to offer a stand-alone plan or complementary coverage
  • Coverage for supplemental drugs that aren’t covered by Medicare

Resources for current members of Group MedicareBlue Rx

Filing a claim

Group MedicareBlue Rx may cover prescriptions filled at out-of-network pharmacies in certain situations. If you use an out-of-network pharmacy, you will generally have to pay the full cost of the drug at the time you fill your prescription. You can ask us to reimburse you for our share of the cost by submitting a claim.

Financial assistance for prescription drugs

Medicare beneficiaries who have limited resources and income may be able to get Extra Help, a government financial assistance program that helps pay for Medicare Part D costs. Learn more about Extra Help.
