Mar. 19, 2020

As always, our top priority is the health, safety and well-being of our members, staff and the communities we serve. Due to the quickly evolving COVID-19 health issue, we want to help you get the care and coverage you need.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) suggests people have on hand an extra supply of their medications. We have lifted restrictions on getting early fills of specialty and non-specialty prescription drugs. That fill will be for the same quantity as the last prescription you filled. You can contact your pharmacy to ask for an early fill and any delivery options. They have approval to provide an early fill on most medications.

You can also use your 90-day supply benefits for covered non-specialty medications at select retail pharmacies or home delivery (mail order) . Log into Prime Therapeutics' website Learn more about third-party links or call the number on your BCBSTX member ID card.

Please note: This early fill information applies if you have BCBSTX pharmacy benefits administered by Prime Therapeutics. Also, all safety measures, prior authorization reviews, as well as prescribing and dispensing laws, still apply.
