Important Information Regarding Prescription Drug Benefit Claims Processing
Excellus BlueCross BlueShield will transition all pharmacy benefit management services from MedImpact to Express Scripts effective January 1, 2017. Those services include claims processing, pharmacy network contracting, and rebate management in addition to mail order pharmacy. As a result of this transition new ID cards will be issued to all members with pharmacy benefits.
Our Excellus BCBS Rx team will continue to oversee and manage ongoing strategies, formulary management and integrated care management programs. Our team will also work with your account management team to support you with trend management programs and benefit consultation. In short, we remain the service lead to you and your employees.
We’re already hard at work with Express Scripts to ensure a smooth transition for our members. Our goal is to keep you and your employees up to date on this transition, and will send updates as we move toward January.
