New Specialty Drug Pharmacy

CuraScript Specialty Pharmacy and Accredo Health Group are coming together under one company. Accredo will now provide specialty drugs to Excellus BlueCross BlueShield members. Members with prescriptions at CuraScript were migrated to the Accredo system on June 8. Accredo began processing claims on June 10.

This transition is seamless for members and prescribing providers. Accredo mailed letters to members who had prescriptions at CuraScript to inform them of the change. Accredo will follow up with a phone call to ensure a smooth transition and answer any questions. Providers were also notified of the change by Accredo. All phone numbers have remained the same.  Members and providers follow the same process to fill prescriptions at Accredo.

Accredo offers members 24/7 access to pharmacists and nurses. These trained staff members are well-versed in working with members who have conditions such as hepatitis, cancer, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, and other conditions requiring specialty drugs.

CuraScript offered online ordering. Accredo will not offer online ordering until later this year. Members who used online ordering were notified of this change.
