Drug spend in the U.S. is expected to reach up to $600 billion by 2023, with hundreds of high-cost, low-value drugs coming to market each year.
That’s why Independence Blue Cross includes both pharmacy and medical benefits in all of our small-business health plans — helping employers offer their employees a better experience, improve outcomes, and control health care costs.
We’re placing a stronger focus on pharmacy benefits in our health plans to improve the overall experience of your employees, so everyone feels good and lives well.
Our Blue Solutions® plans are designed to connect your employees with the medications and information they need:
- Through the member portal at ibx.com, employees can easily manage their prescription drug benefits, estimate costs, and set up mail order to receive medications at home.
- Employees can access over 68,000 retail and independent pharmacies nationwide.
- Every plan includes $3 low-cost generic drugs.1
