Jefferson Specialty Pharmacy

Welcome to Jefferson Specialty Pharmacy

Our Specialty Pharmacy Team is committed to ensuring convenient and timely access to specialty medication therapy.

Specialty medications are used to treat chronic, complex and rare conditions, such as cancer, hepatitis C, and rheumatoid arthritis, to name a few.

Specialty medications are different because they typically:

  • cost more than regular medications
  • need to be taken on a very strict (and sometimes difficult to follow) schedule
  • have special storage and handling directions
  • are given by mouth (pills), but can be given by injection (with a needle)
  • require additional support and coordination amongst a large team of providers

We realize there are often additional hurdles to overcome as you navigate through the process of managing a chronic, complex disease, and there may be limitations such as your ability to follow difficult directions, stay compliant with the therapy or pay for high cost medications.

By choosing Jefferson Specialty Pharmacy you will receive a level of care that will lead to increased health benefits.

As specialists in the medications that treat your disease, we will help you:

  • manage side effects better
  • increase compliance with refill reminder calls
  • with overall improvement of your disease ensuring the maximum therapeutic benefits
  • coordinate your plan of care with all of the members of your healthcare team
  • find financial assistance which may be available for your situation
