Specialty Rx


Specialty drugs require education prior to use and patients often receive special patient monitoring and handling,

Specialty medications are generally prescribed for people with complex or ongoing medical conditions such as multiple sclerosis, hemophilia, hepatitis C and rheumatoid arthritis. These high cost medications also have one or more of the following characteristics: injected or infused, but some may be taken by mouth; unique storage or shipment requirements; additional education and support required from a health care professional; and usually not stocked at retail pharmacies. Hemophilia is subject to specialty drug programs when covered under the pharmacy benefit only.
