Specialty pharmaceuticals are a group of high-cost medicines that are used to treat chronic health problems. These therapies tend to be more complicated and more costly than others. They may require special storage, regular lab testing, screening tests and may be given by injection or orally. To get the most benefit, regular adherence to the regimen is needed.
Specialty medications must be filled within the Physicians Plus Specialty Pharmacy Network, which includes Accredo, UnityPoint Health Meriter Outpatient, and UW Health Specialty Pharmacy. These pharmacies offer personalized patient support services and medication management programs to enhance the effectiveness of therapy.
