Priority Health - Meijer Specialty Pharmacy No Longer a Participating Network Specialty Pharmacy effective January 1, 2024

October 24, 2023

Beginning Jan. 1, 2024, Meijer Specialty Pharmacy has chosen to no longer participate in our specialty pharmacy network for commercial and individual members. This change only impacts drugs covered under the pharmacy benefit. Drugs covered under the medical benefit aren’t affected.

Medicare and Medicaid members can continue to use Meijer Specialty and retail pharmacies for all their prescriptions. All members may continue to use Meijer’s retail pharmacies for their prescriptions that don’t require a fill at a network specialty pharmacy.

 

How will this impact members?

Members have always had the option to fill their specialty prescriptions through Accredo, and beginning Nov. 1, 2023, Corewell Health Specialty Pharmacy will be added as a newly participating network specialty pharmacy. Members won’t see any impact on their cost share when transferring to Accredo or Corewell Health Specialty Pharmacy.  

 

How will members receive their medications?

Corewell Health Specialty Pharmacy can deliver to any address in Michigan and can fill all specialty medications except limited distribution drugs (LDD), which must still be filled by Accredo. Accredo can ship anywhere in the United States.

 

Will current prescriptions be transferred?

Only prescriptions with remaining refills will be transferred to Accredo or Corewell Health Specialty Pharmacy (as dictated by medication type, out-of-state delivery, etc.). To avoid interruptions in therapy, providers should consider sending a new prescription directly to Accredo or Corewell Health Specialty Pharmacy.

How are we communicating this to members?

Impacted members will receive letters from both Priority Health and Meijer advising them of their drug coverage changes and what steps they can take prior to Jan. 1, 2024.

Members are being directed to reach out to their preferred in-network specialty pharmacy (Accredo or Corewell Health Specialty Pharmacy) and request the pharmacy contact their provider about submitting a new prescription.

Thank you for your continued commitment to the health and wellbeing of your patients, our members.
