CVS Specialty® Pharmacy services
Providing multi-faceted support for patients with rare and chronic conditions
Going further to help patients
People with rare or chronic conditions often require complex treatments and specialty medications. Making those medications available at the lowest possible cost — without a long wait — is a top priority for CVS Specialty® Pharmacy.
As part of America’s largest health solutions provider, we’re also uniquely positioned to look for innovative approaches that can improve patients’ health outcomes.
Champions for value
Specialty drugs often come at a steep cost, which can be challenging for patients, payors and the entire health care system.
As one of the nation’s largest and most experienced providers of specialty pharmacy services, we negotiate with drug manufacturers for the most competitive prices and access to complex, expensive therapies. We offer generics and biosimilars when available. And we help payors use advanced analytics and technology that can lead to precise patient interventions and effective solutions.
Partnering to manage complex conditions
Patients who depend on specialty medications need more than just a prescription and a pharmacist to fill it. They need ongoing clinical support, education and counseling to help manage their condition. They need to know that the medications will be available when they need them. And they may need help coordinating multiple health care providers.
Our Care Teams are dedicated teams of specialists led by a pharmacist and nurse trained in complex and chronic conditions. They help manage side effects, communicate with doctors and coordinate with providers. And they’re available 24/7 to answer questions about conditions and treatments.
Our digital tools help connect the dots between patients, partners and services: Patients can use the CVS Specialty® site or app to manage their prescriptions and message their Care Team. Specialty Expedite uses digital tools to streamline prior authorization for prescriptions and to verify benefits coverage. And Specialty Connect gives patients the choice of picking up Rx at CVS Pharmacy® or of having them delivered.
Through Coram® CVS Specialty® Infusion Services, we bring a wide range of specialty infusion, post-acute infusion and nutrition therapies to meet patient needs where they are. And support is available 24/7.
