Berlin, Vt. — Nancy Hogue of Danville brings 30 years of expertise to Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Vermont as the director of pharmacy.

Hogue brings a lifetime of experience as a pharmacist with a diverse perspective from every level of pharmacy practice. She comes to Blue Cross VT from Vermont’s Medicaid program, where she served as the director of pharmacy services for twelve years. She also worked for two prescription benefit management companies and managed the pharmacy departments at several Florida hospitals, giving her a broad understanding of the pharmaceutical industry and a unique perspective on how to drive cost savings for Blue Cross members.

“My top priority is ensuring that our members have access to the critical medicines they need to control chronic conditions and improve their quality of life, while navigating the complex world of pharmaceutical costs that drive drug costs and premiums,” said Hogue.

Hogue has lived in Vermont for more than 25 years, having moved here from Florida to raise a family in a more rural and community-focused town. In addition to her full-time job in the pharmacy field, she ran a bed and breakfast with her mother for several years, and currently participates in grassland conservation of bobolinks and other bird species on her property in Danville. She is currently pursuing a certificate in plant-based nutrition from the T.Colin Campbell Center for Nutritional Studies to better understand how a whole food plant-based diet can prevent, treat, and reverse certain chronic conditions.
