Specialty medications can be costly. Before you begin treatment with a specialty medication, our staff will check for insurance coverage. If the medication is not covered by your insurance we may need to go through a process called “prior authorization” (PA). Our team works closely with your doctor and insurance on this process. Your doctor will talk with you about other options if the prior authorization is denied.
A member of our staff may reach out to you and ask to enroll you in VMC Specialty Pharmacy. Enrollment is your choice. You can call us at any time and disenroll.
Some insurance companies may require that you fill your prescription at a different specialty pharmacy. If this happens, we will work with you to make sure you can receive your medication in a timely manner. We will coordinate the transfer of your specialty medication information to the other pharmacy.
