Specialty Pharmacy Program

  • Your pharmacy benefit requires you to use our contracted specialty pharmacies to fill your specialty medications. View the Mandatory Specialty Drug List to see if your medication applies.

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

    Premera’s Specialty Pharmacy Program experts are here to 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

    Many specialty drugs can be self-administered, so you don’t need a healthcare professional to give you the medication. View a complete list of specialty drugs to see if the drug you're taking qualifies or contact Customer Service.
