Lower RX Costs Lead to Better Overall Health

A healthcare survey1 found that nearly 30% of adults in the United States aren’t taking their medications as prescribed because they can’t afford them.

Don’t let costs stand in the way of your good health.

As part of your Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas City (Blue KC) health planyou have access to affordable medications through Rx Savings Solutions (RxSS). RxSS helps you find lower-cost options for your prescription drugs. Watch this to learn how:

Real-World Example

One RxSS member skipped his diabetes medication for 38 days because he couldn’t afford it. Then he opened one of the emails he had received from RxSS letting him know there was another prescription option that cost 60% less. He made the switch, resumed his treatment, and avoided even more costly healthcare issues—like a trip to the hospital.

If you’re having problems affording medications, RxSS may be able to help you find options that fit your budget and keep your treatment on track.

How RxSS Works

  1. Your online RxSS account shows you equally effective, affordable alternatives covered by your Blue KC plan—including how much they’ll cost.
  2. You and your healthcare provider can talk about your options and make the choice that’s best for your health and budget.
  3. If you decide to switch, RxSS will consult with your doctor to get their approval on any changes and take care of all the other details.

Access or activate your RxSS account today. Log in to or download the MyBlueKC App. Once downloaded, click Plan Benefits & Coverage > Pharmacy Plan Benefits > Spend Less on Prescription Drugs (Continue to Rx Savings Solutions).
