Blue Cross Blue Shield & BlueChoice Health Plan

January 2020 Pharmacy Change

BlueCross & BlueChoice is changing the pharmacy benefit manager from Caremark to OptumRx. This change will affect all BlueCross & BlueChoice members, and every member will receive a new card. We have provided a video with information on My Health Toolkit where you can log in and download a new card. There is also additional information on the pharmacy change below.
