What is a specialty pharmacy?
Specialty pharmacies fill prescriptions for specialty medicines that may be used to treat certain health conditions. These medicines are not generally available at a traditional pharmacy and may require a little more preparation or insurance approval. Specialty pharmacies can also help provide the extra patient support required to get you started.
Specialty pharmacies work directly with drug makers, doctors, office staff, and insurers to streamline the prescription process and better address patient needs. It’s common for specialty pharmacies to contact patients directly, help them understand each step, and help with refills.
How do medicines get filled by specialty pharmacies?
Your doctor will send your prescription to a specialty pharmacy. It is important that the specialty pharmacy is in your insurance network.
Once approved by your insurance, the specialty pharmacy prepares your medicine and contacts you when it is ready to ship. Your medicine will then be shipped to you.
