Independence Blue Cross to make Narcan free for members

Independence Blue Cross announced on Tuesday that it will provide a life-saving opioid and heroin antidote to members free of charge.

The Philadelphia-based health provider said it will stop charging subscribers for injectable and nasal spray forms of naloxone, better known by the brand name Narcan. The drug has been available in Pennsylvania without a written prescription since the fall of 2015.
