Find a Pharmacy

For your convenience, the Blue Advantage (HMO) and Blue Advantage (PPO) pharmacy network includes more than 60,000 pharmacies nationwide, including more than 1,200 in Louisiana. You may go to any of our network pharmacies to receive your covered prescription drugs.

New in 2020, our pharmacy network includes pharmacies that offer preferred cost-sharing and pharmacies that offer standard cost-sharing. When you use a preferred retail pharmacy or take advantage of Express Scripts mail order pharmacy, you will pay less for drugs on Tiers 1 through 3 than you would if you use a non-preferred pharmacy. Learn more about our Preferred Pharmacy Network.

For more information about Express Scripts mail-order pharmacy, visit the Save Time and Money Filling Covered Drugs page.

Use our online provider search tool to locate a participating pharmacy near you.

Please note, Blue Advantage offers a nationwide pharmacy network but our directory list only contains pharmacies located within Louisiana. For help locating a network pharmacy in another state (including those that offer preferred cost-sharing) please contact Customer Service.

Out-of-Network Pharmacies

Generally, we cover drugs filled at an out-of-network pharmacy only when you are not able to use a network pharmacy. To help you, we have network pharmacies outside of our service area where you can get your prescriptions filled as a member of our plan. Examples of circumstances when we would cover prescriptions filled at an out-of-network pharmacy include:

  • If the prescriptions are related to care for a medical emergency or urgent care.
  • If you are unable to obtain a covered drug in a timely manner within our service areas because there are no network pharmacies within a reasonable driving distance that provide 24-hour service.
  • If you are trying to fill a prescription drug that is not regularly stocked at an accessible network retail or mail order pharmacy (including high cost and unique drugs).

Your prescription cost may be more at an out-of-network pharmacy than at an in-network pharmacy. For more information, see your Evidence of Coverage.

Special note: Some Blue Advantage – Medicare Advantage for Employer plans do not offer preferred cost-sharing when you use a preferred pharmacy. You can still use a preferred pharmacy, but may not pay less for your prescriptions than you would at a non-preferred network pharmacy. If you are a Blue Advantage – Medicare Advantage for Employer member, read your plan’s Benefit Documents to see if this applies to you.
