With your Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois 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.
Whether you are at home, the office or on the go, you can find your preferred pharmacy network locations on MyPrime.com.
After signing into MyPrime.com, your pharmacy network will automatically appear. If your plan includes preferred pharmacies, you can filter by “Preferred pharmacies” in your search results.
You can also search without logging in.

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 Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois member ID card.

Hello AlexMKatz. We would have to look at your plan to see why that would be happening. Please send us a private message and I can have our team reach out to you to discuss. - Renee
My BCBSIL card says that I have $0 co-pays and $0 co-insurance, and yet my network preferred pharmacy (Walgreens) continues to charge me co-pays and co-insurance. Can you please explain why this is happening? Since January 1, 2017, I have the Blue Choice Preferred Bronze 106 plan. Thanks.
Hi Ric . As we have always done, we will work with Prime to re-evaluate the network on an ongoing basis to ensure our members
have continued access to quality, affordable health care. However, in order for us to maintain affordable benefits for
our members and customers, we need to obtain competitive reimbursement rates from participating pharmacies within
