Accredo Now Exclusive Specialty Pharmacy for Most Members

Accredo (formerly CuraScript) is now the only national specialty pharmacy from which our members across all lines of business except Medicare Part D can obtain specialty medications.  As of September 5, 2013, Walgreens Specialty Pharmacy is no longer part of the Excellus BlueCross BlueShield specialty network.

Members who have had prescriptions filled at Walgreens were notified of this change in August, as were their health care providers. Prescriptions with open refills remaining at Walgreens were automatically transferred to Accredo providing a seamless transition for members. Those members who did not have open refills were advised to contact their physician and request that a new prescription be faxed to Accredo.
