Specialty Pharmacy

  • The Specialty Pharmacy Program is for members who require specialty medications that are usually self-injected and used to treat complex or rare conditions such as multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, or hepatitis C. Taking specialty medications often means you’ll need extra help learning how to take and manage the medications.

    LifeWise partners with Specialty Pharmacies that help you manage your medications through:

    • Patient education
    • Working with you to assure you are taking your medications correctly and being compliant with the drug therapy
    • Clinical support for dosing and potential side effects
    • Medication ordering and delivery options
