PHARMACY COVERAGE FOR EMPLOYEES
Blue KC is committed to providing your employees high-quality, affordable health coverage. What’s more, we’ve found that by offering integrated medical and pharmacy benefits, we can do a better job of managing your employees’ health.
Working together with our pharmacy benefit manager, we’ve created a high-value pharmacy program that delivers better outcomes and lower costs. And because prescriptions are a vital part of most members’ lives, most every Blue KC plan comes with pharmacy benefits.
Drug formulary is the term we use to describe the complete list of prescription medications covered under Blue KC’s pharmacy benefit. We continuously review this formulary for safety, clinical-effectiveness and cost-effectiveness – with input from doctors, pharmacists and other experts.
Here’s our current drug formulary. What’s more, we offer a generic-based formulary for even greater savings.
