As part of an integrated team, our specialty pharmacy experts work together to develop your personalized care plan.

How we can help lower the cost of your medication

There may be times where you are prescribed a medication that your insurance plan does not cover. When that happens, we will work diligently to lower your drug cost by appealing coverage decisions with your insurer, working with your provider to switch to a medication that is covered, applying valid manufacturer discounts, or seeking other financial assistance options. Our team can also help answer and address questions related to prior authorizations or insurance coverage. We will research all options to make your medications as affordable as possible.
