Want to Lower Your Prescription Costs? Horizon’s New Online Service Makes It Easy
2 MINUTE READ
Rx Savings Solutions gives customers options to cut out-of-pocket expenses.
What if lowering your prescription costs didn’t mean spending time on the phone, visiting multiple pharmacies to compare prices or taking medicine your doctor didn’t think was the most effective?
Horizon Blue Cross and Blue Shield of New Jersey members with certain health plans1 who have activated their online account at HorizonBlue.com or downloaded the HorizonBlue app now have access to Rx Savings Solutions2, a free online tool that searches for savings and works with your doctor to lower your out-of-pocket costs. People who enrolled in Rx Savings Solutions have saved an average of $439 out-of-pocket annually on their prescriptions.3
Here’s how it works:
- Eligible members sign up for the Rx Savings Solutions tool through the Horizon Blue app or their account on HorizonBlue.com. If you need to download the app, you can text GetApp to 422272 from your mobile device or visit the app store and search for “Horizon Blue”4.
- Rx Savings Solutions works through Horizon’s Pharmacy Benefits Manager, Prime Therapeutics, to access Horizon’s claims database and search for a savings opportunity for you. Rx Savings Solutions then sends you an alert based on your preferences — including email, direct mail or text alert — with the money-saving information.
- Savings could come from switching to a generic instead of a more expensive brand drug, taking the same drug but one made by a different pharmaceutical company, or just by changing from a capsule to a tablet of your current prescription. Sometimes it can be as simple as using a different local pharmacy in your area since prices vary even among the big pharmacy chains.
- No changes are made unless you accept the savings recommendation. While you should always consult with your physician before making any changes to your prescriptions, once you agree, Rx Savings Solutions will work directly with the doctors who wrote your prescription to implement the changes and deliver the savings.
To take advantage of this program, log in to your HorizonBlue.com account or the HorizonBlue app (text GetApp to 422272 or search "Horizon Blue" in the app store to download).
- Fully insured commercial, Medicare Advantage and BravenSM Health members qualify for Rx Savings Solutions.
