BCBSNC Customers Save Millions and Stay on Medications with Free Generics Program
Date:6/1/2009

tage customers (once they meet their annual prescription deductible, if applicable).
  • Medicare Supplement customers who have prescription coverage on their policies (once they meet their annual prescription deductible, if applicable).
  • Members of insured employer groups (if their employer group has pharmacy benefits through BCBSNC).
  • Members of self-funded employer groups (if their employer group has pharmacy benefits through BCBSNC and has chosen to participate in the program).

  • Generic drugs are equivalent to corresponding brand name drugs in active ingredients, dosage, strength, safety and performance, but they cost a fraction of their brand name counterparts. Since prescription drug costs are a key driver of rising medical costs, the long-term increased use of generics also impacts future premiums for the benefit to BCBSNC customers.

    With or without the copay waiver, generic medications cost less out-of-pocket than brand-name medications. Generic copay waiver programs increase those savings and highlight the benefits of generic medications.
