Be RxSmart. It's Your Choice.SM
Help your patients make the most of their healthcare dollar by prescribing generics rather than high-cost brand name drugs. Prescription drugs are among the most costly aspects of healthcare, but you can help your patients by prescribing generics.
Our be RxSmart prescription drug benefit is designed to educate our members on the opportunities to save by practicing healthy lifestyle habits and using generics and low-cost alternatives to brand name medications. A large number of prescription drugs lost patent protection, creating even more opportunities to save on drug costs. Network Providers can find a list of recent changes to the prescription drug formulary on myBlue Provider. If you are not a Network Provider, please visit the Out of State and Non-Network Rx Medication Search page.

Some prescription drugs require prior authorization to help ensure the most cost-effective and medically necessary medication is used to help our members.
Quantity limits are based on manufacturer and U.S. FDA recommendations, as well as accepted medical practices. Limits help control prescription drug dosing and duration while minimizing the potential for adverse events.
