Important Notice Regarding Pacific Blue Cross Pay Direct Cards and e-claims

Pacific Blue Cross ("PBC") is upgrading their claims software. This means there will be a service suspension for Pay Direct cards as well as e-claims from March 27 to April 3, 2014.

If you have Pay Direct coverage, your Pay Direct card will be unable to reimburse you automatically at the pharmacy during this period. In addition, you will be unable to submit an e-claim during this period.

If you know you have a prescription refill scheduled between March 27 and April 3, fill it early.

If you are prescribed a new medication between March 27 and April 3, pay for the subscription and mail your receipt to PBC for reimbursement. If the cost of covering the entire prescrition will cause you financial hardship, ask your pharmacist to dispense a small supply to carry you through the one-week suspension.
