Specialty Pharmaceuticals for Office Administration

Specialty pharmaceuticals is a class of prescription drugs that are typically produced through biotechnology (sometimes known as biologicals) and require special patient monitoring and handling, in addition also require unique education prior to use. Our Specialty Pharmaceutical Program helps physicians conveniently obtain medications directly from our network of specialty pharmaceutical providers.

Helping you with your specialty pharmaceutical needs

We know that specialty pharmaceuticals may require special handling or storage and can be expensive to carry in your office. As the demand for high-cost specialty medications increases, physicians are struggling to manage the costs associated with their increased use.

Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey has contracted with specialty pharmaceutical providers that can directly supply your office with specialty medications. These selected providers will bill Horizon BCBSNJ directly for medications delivered to your office. All medications arrive in manufacturer-sealed vials or in pre-mixed syringes.

Placing an order is easy
