Frequently Asked Questions
What is a specialty pharmacy?
A specialty pharmacy is a pharmacy that focuses on rare-disease state medications to assist patients with their complex treatments. Not to be confused with retail pharmacies, specialty pharmacy services extend to illnesses such as multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, hepatitis, and HIV just to name a few. In addition to providing complex drug therapies, a specialty pharmacy provides patient support through education, insurance verification, navigate any side-effects, and assist with questions throughout the treatment regime.
Why have I been prescribed medication from a specialty pharmacy?
Just like physicians who specialize in specific areas of healthcare, pharmacies can specialize in specific areas of medications. A specialty pharmacy provides medication designed to treat rare disease states that are not available to retail pharmacies. Your diagnosis requires specialty medications that are not readily available at retail pharmacies.
How much will my medication cost?
Your medication costs will vary depending on a variety of different factors. The amount that you pay for your medication is pre-determined by your insurance company or Medicare/Medicaid.
