Preferred specialty pharmacy providers

If you are prescribed a specialty drug, you may only be allowed to use a certain pharmacy as your preferred specialty pharmacy, typically CVS SpecialtyTM External Site and Hy-Vee Pharmacy Solutions External Site. Specialty drug coverage varies by plan. Please check your coverage manual to know which preferred pharmacy is covered by your plan.

When you use a preferred pharmacy for your specialty drugs, you'll receive the following services at no extra cost:

  • Educational materials and ongoing support to help you manage your health
  • Complete insurance billing, including coordination of benefits for lower out-of-pocket costs and virtually no paperwork
  • Free courier delivery of medications, often with next-day delivery
  • Supplies, including syringes, alcohol swabs and sharps kits, if required
  • Access to pharmacists and other health experts 24 hours a day, seven days a week
  • Follow-up care calls to remind you when it is time to refill your prescription, check on your therapy progress, and answer any questions you may have

If you're not sure whether you've been prescribed a specialty drug, you can find out by checking your drug formulary or logging in to myWellmark® to see whether the drug is covered.
