Magnolia Open Access Blue Cross Blue Shield Logo

Administered by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Louisiana and CVS Caremark

The Office of Group Benefits (OGB) offers multiple health plans, including the Magnolia Open Access Plan. The claims administrator is Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana, while the pharmacy benefit manager is CVS Caremark. The Magnolia Open Access offers moderate deductibles and coinsurance in exchange for a higher premium. It differs from the other Magnolia plans in that members enrolled in the Open Access plan will not pay copayments at physician visits. Instead, once a member’s deductible for allowable charges is met, he or she will pay 10% of the allowable amount for in-network care and 30% of the allowable amount for out-of-network care. Out-of-network care may be balance billed. Coverage is provided within the Blue Cross nationwide network, as well as out-of-network.

Prescription Coverage

OGB uses the CVS Caremark formulary to help members select the most appropriate, lowest-cost options. Members will continue to pay a portion of the cost of their prescriptions in the form of a co-pay or coinsurance. The amount members pay toward their prescription depends on the tier of medication -generic, preferred brand, non-preferred brand, or specialty drug.

Tier Member Responsibility Once You Pay $1,500
Generic 50% up to $30 $0 co-pay
Preferred 50% up to $55 $20 co-pay
Non-Preferred 65% up to $80 $40 co-pay
Specialty 50% up to $80 $40 co-pay
