New Specialty Drug list from BCBS
Jan 30, 2012

Hi, I have been on an inindividual health plan with BCBSof GA since 2003. I was diagnosed with HIV 3 yrs. ago. My insurance has always paid for my drugs with a $25. copay. This past month BCBS call and informed me that I had select a new policy with them since my old one was too expensive. I did so, I now went to get my percrpiption filled and my co pay is now 25% not $25. I call and I was told that all across the board BCBS made a new list of specialty drugs and since I now have a new policy , they will no longe grandfather my copay in. IS THIS LEAGLE?

Response from Mr. Chambers

Unfortunately, insurance companies can change their contract benefits as long as they don't single out individuals to do it, but instead apply the changes to all similar policies.
