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)*
*IMPORTANT, PLEASE NOTE: Starting June 1, 2018, AllianceRx Walgreens Prime specialty pharmacy will be out of network and Accredo will become Premera’s
exclusive preferred pharmacy for specialty drugs.
If you currently fill your prescription through AllianceRx Walgreens Prime, your current prescription will be transferred to Accredo on June 1, 2018.
You can switch to Accredo before the June 1, 2018 change takes effect. Call Accredo at 800-689-6592. They will need the names of your drugs, as well as your doctor’s name and phone number.
Call Premera customer service at 800-995-2420 Monday through Friday 5 a.m. to 8 p.m. Pacific Time with questions.
Accredo and AllianceRx Walgreens Prime are independent companies providing specialty pharmacy services to Premera Blue Cross members.
