Understand your pharmacy benefits

If your employer offers a pharmacy benefit with your BCBSRI health plan, then it includes coverage for medications. Here you’ll find links to important resources you’ll need to get the most out of this coverage.

Prescription savings program

MedsYourWay® helps you find the lowest available price of applicable discount cards for your eligible medications—no coupons or other cards needed.

To use MedsYourWay:

  • Visit a participating in-network retail pharmacy.
  • Present your BCBSRI member ID card if you have BCBSRI pharmacy benefits.
  • Pay the lowest available price AND have covered Rx purchases applied to your deductible.

Do you prefer home delivery?

Mail order pharmacy could save you money and time:

  • Receive 90-day supplies of your maintenance medicines.
  • Enjoy free standard shipping, refill reminders, and auto-refill.
  • Save time when you order online.
  • Pharmacists check each prescription multiple times before they send it to you.

Call 833-721-1627, 24/7, to create an account or to transfer your current prescriptions.

Please have your member ID card, prescription information, and doctor’s contact information ready. Our mail order pharmacy partner will help you get started.
