The specialty pharmacy network is a growing division within the pharmaceutical industry. Medications available there are typically injected or infused and are used to treat more complex medical conditions. For some of these drugs, prescriptions can only be filled at a retail specialty pharmacy and not the standard corner drug store.
Direct With Insurance Providers
Every insurance provider works with different specialty pharmacy networks. Blue Cross Blue Shield is one of the largest. The best way to reach such a network is to communicate with the insurance company. Doctors and other primary medical physicians can point a patient in the direction of a nearby facility within the network, but the pharmacy can provide far more in-depth information.
Some of the current specialty pharmacies within varying insurance company networks include CVS, Walgreens, AcariaHealth, BriovaRx, Metro Drugs and others. Blue Cross has all of the specialty pharmacies within the network listed.
