Currently, many people are having issues with their Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois (BCBSIL) policies. Here are some tips as what to do:
Walgreens and CVS are assisting customers who are having coverage verification issues. Walgreens announced Monday that it would provide up to one month of medication, with no upfront cost to patients, who can bring confirmation of their enrollment in the Health Insurance Marketplace if the pharmacy staff isn’t able to verify eligibility with the insurer.
CVS Caremark pharmacies will assist patients with a temporary disruption of insurance coverage with a 15- or 30-day bridge supply of medication to support continuity of care. The in-store MinuteClinic medical clinics will also be providing similar flexibility for patients who may be in transition with their health care coverage.
Providers will need the following information to contact Blue Cross Blue Shield to verify membership and eligibility for services if you have not received your new ID card:
* Subscriber name
* Patient name
* Patient date of birth
* Patient mailing address
* Last 4 digits of the patient SSN
* Effective date of coverage
