Specialty drugs are usually injectable, oral or inhaled drugs. They are used to treat chronic conditions such as multiple sclerosis, growth deficiencies, hepatitis C and cancer. They also require special storage and/or handling. You have the choice of filling your specialty drug prescription using one of the following options:
- Our Specialty Pharmacy Program
If you choose to use our Specialty Pharmacy Program, your doctor or other health care professional will contact our Specialty Pharmacy Program and your prescriptions will be filled and sent directly to your home or doctor’s office.
