Specialty Pharmacy Services

LifeBridge Health Specialty Pharmacy Services

Specialty medications are prescription medications that are used to treat complex, chronic conditions like cancer, rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis, and often relate to specialties such as gastroenterology, neurology and pediatrics. Specialty medications often require special handling, administration and monitoring. It’s also likely that you will need special approval from your insurance to receive these medications. To simplify the process, LifeBridge Health employees who participate in the health care plan are required to use our Outpatient Pharmacies for their specialty medications.

Specialty Medications are therapies that have the following:

  • Require weight-based dosing (e.g. pediatrics, oncology medications) or compounding
  • Have significant side effect or risk profiles
  • Challenges to manufacture or require special handling
  • Involve complex insurance reimbursement
  • Require disease management services or patient monitoring

We offer services that include:

  • Coordination of benefit coverage
  • Medication counseling on adverse effects and monitoring
  • Refill reminder calls
  • Labs and appointment follow-ups
  • Arrange for medication delivery
  • Medication history review
  • Convenient access to specialty pharmacists
