Canby pharmacy dilemma


Blue Cross Blue Shield needs to provide better service to Canby customers. Certain Canby residents can’t fill their prescriptions at the local pharmacy because the local pharmacy has not been able to contract with the new BCBS Blue Connect or Network E insurance program. In addition, the local pharmacist has not been able to communicate with the company to try to rectify the situation. Canby customers will have to drive to other towns to fill their prescriptions.
