A specialty pharmacy is a special pharmacy that has been given authorization to fill prescriptions for specialty medications. The pharmacy can often deliver the medication to your location of choice and will provide any necessary supplies, counseling and support.
Specialty medications are prescription drugs that require special handling, storage, administration or monitoring. These drugs may be injected, infused, or taken by mouth and may not always be available at a local retail pharmacy. They may be used to treat complex conditions including:
- Hepatitis C
