Generic Equivalent Listing

 
 

What is a generic drug?

Contrary to many myths, the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) certifies that generic drugs are as safe and effective as their brand-name counterparts. In fact, the FDA’s quality standards for approval of drugs sold in the U.S. are uniform. The FDA requires the generic manufacturer to prove that the generic drug has the same active ingredients and the same therapeutic effect as the brand-name medication.

As part of an ongoing effort to address rising health care costs, Blue Cross of Idaho wants you to know about generic drugs so that you are informed about your options when purchasing prescriptions.
 

Generic Drug Initiative

Some Blue Cross of Idaho prescription drug plans include a mandatory generic substitution requirement. If you or your physician requests the brand name medication when a generic equivalent is available, you are responsible to pay the difference between the contracted cost of the generic and brand name drug in addition to the tier 3 copayment.
 

Generic Drug List

Blue Cross of Idaho has identified several brand name medications for which a generic is available with identical active ingredients. For brand name drugs that have a generic equivalent your pharmacists should automatically fill your prescription with the generic equivalent (unless indicated otherwise by your physician) and you will pay the lowest copayment. If you purchase the brand name drug, you will be responsible for the difference in cost between the generic and brand name drug plus the applicable brand name copay.
 
Some brand name medications are available under multiple names. This list may not include all of the brand names that are available for a specific drug.
