Methodist Hospital’s specialty pharmacy program provides medications for patients with rare, serious or chronic health conditions. We have dedicated pharmacists that will provide education on how to use and administer your medication and answer any questions you may have. In addition, our pharmacists will work with your healthcare provider to address any medication issues.
Are Specialty Medications Expensive?
Yes, specialty medications are often expensive and require additional steps to be approved by insurance; this is called a “prior authorization” and may require supporting documentation from your prescriber. Our pharmacy team will work with your insurance company and provider on your behalf to get the prescription authorized.
What if I can’t make it to the Pharmacy every month?
No worries, we will coordinate delivery of your medication to your home or an approved alternate location. We also include any necessary supplies such as needles and alcohol swabs. If your medication requires special handling or refrigeration, we will package and ship it accordingly. Ensuring you have your medication each and every month is our priority!
