Additional services for health insurance coverage and payment methods:

Our team will contact your health insurance company to make sure your specialty medication will be paid for by your plan. This process is often called a prior authorization. If the prior authorization is given or approved, you may still have to pay a portion of the costs such as a deductible, co-pay and co-insurance. You will be responsible for paying your co-pay when you pick up the medication or refill. We will also look for financial assistance programs that might be able to help you, if needed.
