BCBSNC announces pharmacy benefit change for Allegra and Allegra-D

In early March, Allegra (fexofenadine) and Allegra-D (fexofenadine/pseudoephedrine) became available as OTC (over-the-counter) medications.

Members may be able to continue to receive Allegra and Allegra-D under their pharmacy benefit in pharmacies until current supplies run out. BCBSNC does not cover OTC medications, so the new OTC Allegra products will not be covered under their prescription drug benefits. Prescription fexofenadine liquid may remain on the market for certain uses in pediatric patients.
