Blue Choice

Specialty Drugs

BlueChoice® provides coverage for specialty drugs under both the pharmacy and medical benefit. Members must fill oral and self-injectable medications through our preferred specialty pharmacy, CVS/specialty, to have coverage under their pharmacy benefit. CVS/specialty is a division of CVS Health, an independent company that provides specialty pharmacy services on behalf of BlueChoice. To get a patient set up, please contact CVS/specialty at 800-237-2767. Or providers can fax a prescription to 800-323-2445.

For specialty drugs billed under the pharmacy benefit, CVS/specialty will review prior authorization requests. Please contact them at 800-237-2767. Beginning June 1, 2016, requests for prior authorization for specialty drugs be billed under the medical benefit should be made through Novologix, CVS/caremark's medical prior authorization system. Providers can get to Novologix with single sign-on access through My Insurance ManagerSM.

Drugs that are billed under the medical benefit as “buy and bill” do not require purchase through CVS/specialty.  Generally, the member has a specialty pharmacy copayment for every dose you administer in your office. The member has a monthly specialty pharmacy copayment for oral or self-injectable drugs. Please consult the member's Schedule of Benefits for copayment amounts.
