Prescription Drugs
Inpatient Prescription Drugs
Prescription drugs you receive while you are hospitalized, or "inpatient" drugs, are covered by your Anthem Blue Cross medical plan. If you are hospitalized in a PPO network hospital, prescription drugs are covered at 100%. If you are hospitalized in a non-network hospital, prescription drugs are covered at 70%.
Outpatient Prescription Drugs
Prescriptions dispensed and filled on an outpatient basis are covered under a separate plan, the Prescription Drug Plan, described in the section entitled Prescription Drug Coverage. Outpatient drugs are not covered by the Anthem Blue Cross medical plan unless dispensed as an infusion drug or injection that requires the expertise of trained medical personnel.
