The Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Nebraska (BCBSNE) Prescription Drug List, also called a formulary, is a list of drugs included in most prescription drug benefits. Coverage of these drugs is subject to your prescription benefit plan design. Please review your prescription drug plan along with the prescription drug list to determine coverage.
Your prescription drug list is specific to the health plan in which you are enrolled. Log in to manage your medicines and view the correct list for your plan. If you are not currently enrolled in myNebraskablue.com, register today!
IMPORTANT: The prescription drug lists may be updated at any time without notice. Please be aware that including a medication on a prescription drug list does not ensure coverage.
Prescription drugs are medications recommended by the BCBSNE Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee. These drugs are selected based on a quality evaluation of safety, effectiveness, unique qualities and cost.
You may contact the Member Services Department at the phone number listed on the back of your BCBSNE member ID card if you do not know in which plan you are enrolled.

Prescription Drugs Requiring Preauthorization
As part of our efforts to address the serious issue of escalating costs and continue to provide you with access to quality and cost-effective pharmacy care, BCBSNE requires that benefits for certain drugs be preauthorized. Please view the list of those medications or search all medical policies at Med Policy Blue. Your health care provider will need to complete the applicable preauthorization form and fax or mail it to us.

Two-Tier Generic Drug List
Beginning Jan. 1, 2017, a two-tiered generic medication benefit will be in effect, which could affect how much you pay for certain generic drugs. A two-tiered generic medications benefit design features a generic drug list with two levels of member cost-share amounts for generic prescription medications. This design provides an incentive for you to request lower-cost generic medications from your health care provider whenever possible. A complete list of these medications can be found here.
