If you enroll in one of the SMU Medical Plans administered by BCBSTX, your prescription drug benefits will be administered by Express Scripts (formerly known as Medco). You have the choice of purchasing your prescriptions through local retail pharmacies or through the mail order program.
After enrolling, please visit Express Scripts and register for access to your Express Scripts account.
Mail Order (90-Day Supply)
You may order up to a 90-day supply of your medications and they will be mailed directly to your home at reduced cost to you. Using the Mail Order service is convenient because you can avoid the pharmacy and get a 90-day supply at one time.
Retail (30-Day Supply)
The retail prescription program uses a network of participating pharmacies. To receive the highest benefit level, you must use a participating pharmacy.
Specialty Prescription Program
Specialty medications are generally high-cost injectable drugs with special handling or storage requirements that require care adherence to treatment protocols. Through Accredo, members using covered specialty medications can have their medication delivered directly to them, as well as receive coverage coordination and support. There is not additional few for these services.
To contact Accredo, call (800) 922-8279, Monday through Friday, between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., Central time.
