As the cost of health care continues to rise, comprehensive benefit plans become even more important. Your drug plan is a key part of your health plan and helps you get the prescription medications you and your family need to stay healthy without having to pay full price out of pocket. To get the most value out of your drug plan, it is important to understand how it works. We all have a role in controlling drug costs. To ensure the viability and long-term sustainability of benefit plans, Alberta Blue Cross® uses several plan management tools. These tools help control costs without compromising health outcomes.
The following videos explain some of the tools that may be used to help manage costs. Tools can vary depending on your benefit plan. For the specific details on your benefits coverage, please use the plan member services site or contact Alberta Blue Cross® directly.
