This drug cost estimator tool is for members who have their pharmacy/prescription drug coverage through
BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee. If your prescription drug coverage is provided by another company, this
tool will NOT provide an accurate representation of your true prescription drug cost or coverage level.
Compare the cost of brand name drugs versus
generic prescription drugs.
These amounts represent the average cost
at pharmacies in the BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee pharmacy
network. It represents the average cost that those who have coverage
through BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee have paid - the
actual cost you pay may differ.
The FDA approves both brand name and generic prescription drugs.
Generic drugs may be classified as either Generic Equivalents,
a drug with the same ingredients as their name brand counterpart,
or Therapeutic Alternatives, which include drugs that differ from
their name brand counterpart chemically, but are just as effective.
