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.
Premera partners with Specialty Pharmacies that help you manage your medications through:
Accredo, an Express Scripts specialty pharmacy
Alliance Rx Walgreens Prime specialty pharmacy (Formerly Walgreens Specialty Pharmacy)*
*Starting January 1, 2018, AllianceRx Walgreens Prime specialty pharmacy will be in-network only for select plans.
Accredo and AllianceRx Walgreens Prime are independent companies providing specialty pharmacy services to Premera Blue Cross and Premera Blue Cross Blue Shield of Alaska members.
For your self-funded group clients
As the specialty pharmacy market rapidly evolves, Premera Blue Cross continues to work toward providing the best quality and savings on high-cost prescriptions for our customers with complex or rare conditions.
That’s why we offer your self-funded group clients a more focused approach to specialty pharmacy providers that maximizes your clients plan savings while delivering individualized patient care to their employees.
