Medical and Prescription Plan Information - Medical Care and Pharmacy Benefits

New for 2019/20 Academic Year - Anthem BCBS by AHP

When on campus, PUSH should be the initial contact unless it is of an emergency nature (life-threatening). When seen by a PUSH provider, your deductible is waived, except when using the laboratory. There will be a $15 co-pay for some PUSH services such as x-rays.

When receiving treatment outside of PUSH, students are encouraged to use:

When in Indiana - Anthem Blue Access Network

When elsewhere in the US - National PPO (Blue Card PPO)

You can find providers here:

 A $200 deductible for in-network preferred providers and a $400 deductible for out-of-network providers will apply to all services outside PUSH.

Preventive care services are only covered if performed by an Anthem in-network provider.

Mid America Clinical Laboratories (MACL), located in PUSH is in the Anthem network, and all preferred network coverage will apply.

The Purdue University Pharmacy (PUP) is the preferred pharmacy of the plan. Insured students and their insured dependents can have prescriptions filled at the pharmacy located in RHPH building, Room 118. A $10 copay for Tier 1 drugs, $20 copay for Tier 2 and Tier 3 drugs and a $50 copay for Tier 4 drugs applies to each covered prescription at PUP. New for 2019/20 - PUP will now fill 90 day supplies for Tiers 1 through 3. For your convenience, a prescription drug list can be found at

Please note: when you do not use PUP, prescriptions can only be filled at an Anthem network pharmacy, co-pay rates are higher outside of PUP.

Most US Providers will file claims to Anthem BCBS for services received. All claims must be submitted to insurance within 90 days of the date of service.
