Group MedicareBlue Rx (PDP)

You are committed to offering retiree coverage that is valued and also controls your costs. Yet offering prescription drug benefits to retirees can present financial challenges to your company or union

Group MedicareBlue Rx plans from Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota can help. You may want to offer a stand-alone group prescription drug plan to retirees; or maybe you offer retiree medical coverage and are looking for ways to control prescription drug expenses.  In either case, look to Blue Cross for plans that provide retiree prescription drug coverage, simplify plan administration and reduce your overall costs.

A variety of plan options gives you a choice in benefits and how much of the drug cost your retirees pay. You also have a choice for the monthly premium; you may pay the full premium for the retiree or share it with your retirees.
