Blue Cross To Allow HIV/AIDS Patients to "Opt-Out" of Mandatory Mail-Order Rx Drug Program, Announces Consumer Watchdog
Date:5/23/2013

try of a Consent Order by the Hon. Judith Hayes of the San Diego Superior Court, any current Blue Cross member prescribed HIV/AIDS medications, and any member prescribed those medications in the future, have an unconditional right to opt-out of the Blue Cross mail-order program at any time.  Blue Cross members who opt-out can continue purchasing such medications at a retail pharmacy.  

"Blue Cross should be commended for listening to the serious and heartfelt concerns of their customers who depend on local pharmacists for their life-saving medications," said Edith Kallas of Whatley Kallas LLC. "This settlement ensures that Blue Cross's mail order program benefits consumers without unfairly targeting its most vulnerable patients and providing them appropriate opportunities to choose what is best for them."

Beginning June 1, Blue Cross members will be able to opt-out of the mail-order program by contacting Blue Cross's mail-order pharmacy, CuraScript, on a dedicated toll-free telephone line. Consumers currently prescribed such medications should receive a letter late next week from Blue Cross providing this telephone number and additional instructions for opting-out. Blue Cross members may also submit a claim for reimbursement of any out-of-pocket costs incurred as a result of enrolling in the CuraScript mail-order program between December 1, 2012 and May 31, 2013.
