What Is A Specialty Medication?

Specialty medications are used in the treatment of chronic conditions and in complex treatment regimens for Cancer, Hepatitis C, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Psoriasis, Crohn's Disease and Multiple Sclerosis and many others.

The medications used to treat these diseases are often significantly more expensive than traditional prescription and involve ongoing management of adherence, side effects, dosage changes and refills.
