Pharmacy Policies

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Alabama pharmacy policies are based on (i) information in FDA approved package inserts (and black box warning, alerts, or other information disseminated by the FDA as applicable); (ii) research of current medical and pharmacy literature; and/or (iii) review of common medical practices in the treatment and diagnosis of disease as of the date hereof. On this site we offer our final pharmacy policies and draft pharmacy policies. The draft policies are available for provider comment for 45 days from the posting date listed on the document. We encourage practicing physicians to provide input.

Note: Coverage is subject to member's specific benefits. Group specific policies will supersede these policies when applicable. Please refer to member's benefit plan.

Pharmacy Policies Disclaimer

The purpose of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Alabama's pharmacy policies are to provide a guide to coverage. Pharmacy policies are not intended to dictate to physicians how to practice medicine. Physicians should exercise their medical judgment in providing the care they feel is most appropriate for their patients.
