Prescription Drugs

Prescription drug benefits are determined by your medical plan.

Prescription drug coverage for retirees

Your Blue Cross and Blue Shield of New Mexico (BCBSNM) health plan includes a prescription drug benefit administered by Prime Therapeutics. The cost of the prescription drug plan is included in your medical premiums.


  • The co-pays for prescription drugs are based on a 3-tier prescription drug benefit.
  • Co-payments are different for formulary or non-formulary, generic, or brand/preferred name.
  • Review the BCBSNM Drug List (pdf) to find out which tier a specific drug falls under.


Prescription drug co-pays vary from plan to plan.
