How do I fill my prescriptions when I am traveling or when I am outside of the plan services area?
We encourage you to use our in-network pharmacies at all times to fill your prescriptions. If you take a prescription drug on a regular basis and you are going on a trip, be sure to check your supply of the drug before you leave. We cannot pay for any prescriptions that are filled by pharmacies outside the United States, even for a medical emergency. We will cover your prescription at an out-of-network pharmacy only for certain reasons. For example:
- If you are unable to get a covered drug in a timely manner within our service area because there are no network pharmacies within a reasonable driving distance that provide 24-hour service;
- If you are trying to fill a covered prescription drug that is not regularly stocked at an in-network retail or mail order pharmacy (these drugs include orphan drugs or other specialty pharmaceuticals).
