Walgreens Back in RxBLUE Network on Sept. 15

We at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana are pleased to report that Walgreens will once again be a part of your RxBLUE PDP pharmacy network. Beginning Sept. 15, 2012, RxBLUE PDP members can count Walgreens as a network provider for their prescription needs.

At Blue Cross, we're committed to keeping prescription drugs affordable and accessible. That's why we contract with Express Scripts, Inc., an independent pharmacy benefit manager, to administer pharmacy benefits for many of our customers. Express Scripts, Inc.'s job is to negotiate nationwide contracts with pharmacies like Walgreens on behalf of health plans and employer groups.  Recently, Express Scripts, Inc., the company we use to manage your RxBLUE PDP prescription drug benefits and the Walgreens retail pharmacy chain reached a multi-year, network agreement.

To see a listing of pharmacies that are now in the RxBLUE PDP pharmacy network, visit our Pharmacies page. By Sept. 15, 2012, you will see Walgreens listed as a network pharmacy.

Again, we are pleased that Walgreens has agreed to participate in our RxBLUE PDP pharmacy network starting Sept. 15, 2012. If you have questions about your pharmacy benefits, please contact RxBLUE PDP Customer Service at 1-888-223-BLUE (2583), 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., seven days a week. TTY users should call 1-800-947-5277.
