Notice from Excellus: As of September 1, 2020, Kroger, Albertson’s and Publix pharmacies are no longer part of the Excellus BlueCross BlueShield network. Express Scripts (ESI), our pharmacy benefit manager, is working hard to help reduce overall costs for members by removing higher-cost pharmacies from the network. This was not an easy decision to make, but in the end, our goal is to provide the most cost-effective options possible for our members.


Retirees joining the MVP Health Care Advantage plan's on 1/1/2021 should have received your new insurance cards. If not, please contact MVP directly at 1-800-665-7924.

Medicare B premium reimbursements for July - December 2020 will be mailed out on or around December 23, 2020.
