Prescription Drugs: Specialty Medication

Specialty medication prescriptions must be filled through the Express Scripts mail order specialty pharmacy. This type of medication usually requires injection or infusion, and special handling including temperature control.

Patients needing specialty medication require continued treatment for long-term and often complicated diseases and associated conditions. The specialty pharmacy can support these needs with a specially trained team of pharmacists and registered nurses.  Call 800-803-2523 to find out more about this program.

If you submit a prescription for a specialty medication to a retail pharmacy, the pharmacy will instruct you to submit the prescription to the Express Scripts mail order specialty pharmacy.
