Specialty drugs are those drugs that are
generally, but not always, injectable drugs that you may receive at home or at
your doctor’s office. These include drugs used to treat Multiple Sclerosis,
anemia and Rheumatoid Arthritis. The Funds’ preferred provider for
specialty pharmacy drugs is the CVS Caremark® Specialty Pharmacy.
Using the CVS Caremark® Specialty Pharmacy means that you will get personal
attention from a pharmacist-led team that provides condition-specific
education, instructions on how to take your medications properly, and expert
advice on how to manage your drug therapy. You will also have easy
access to pharmacists and other health experts 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
We strongly encourage you to consider using the Funds’ preferred pharmacy to
assist with your specialty medication services. Non-preferred specialty drugs
will not be covered until all preferred drugs have been exhausted. Please see
toll-free 1-800-237-2767 to transfer your specialty drugs to the CVS Caremark®
Specialty Pharmacy. For your convenience, CVS Caremark®
will call your doctor and take care of the paperwork.
Representatives are available Monday through Friday, 7:30 AM – 9 PM, Saturday 9
– 4 PM EST.
