Tips on Cost Containment for your Plan

  1. Pharmacy Value Finder -  The Pharmacy Value Finder is a website that offers members the information they need to get the most value for their dollar. Through the search function they can find the pharmacy in their area that offers the best value to fill their prescription as well as the level and extent of other services offered.

    Since price is not always the determining factor when it comes to choosing where to shop, the site also includes details on each pharmacy’s associated services and hours of operation. Users can evaluate which pharmacy gives them the overall best value while meeting their individual service needs. The Pharmacy Value Finder is an active tool designed to assist our members in making smart buying decisions and in turn keeping your health and wellness expenses reasonable.

  2. Blue Advantage - To access a wealth of savings on medical, vision care, and many other products and services, visit the Blue Advantage Website.  New providers are added to the Blue Advantage program on a regular basis.

  4. If you require immediate medical attention, always call 911 first.

    An overnight stay in a hospital can range in cost across the Province of New Brunswick from $2000 to $4000 per day.
