Take Action

  • Update your mailing address to ensure you receive important information from Blue Cross Blue Shield to obtain other insurance coverage
  • Secure other health insurance coverage early to avoid having a break in coverage
  • Transfer medical records if needed
  • Fill eligible prescriptions before you leave 

Need to Fill Prescriptions

You can fill most prescriptions at any Express Scripts participating pharmacy throughout the United States. Your copayment(s) or drug benefits do not change.

Note: The Student Health Insurance Plan will not cover the cost of prescriptions beyond your plan end date.

If you are traveling abroad, you may request an override prior to your departure; however, the plan will not approve an override to cover prescriptions beyond the plan termination date. The request will only be processed if you are eligible for a refill prior to your plan termination date.
