Our goal is to remove any potential obstacles to your treatment.
We will work with your insurance company to cover the cost of your medications. This is called “prior authorization,” “pre-approval” or “pre-certification.”
Even with insurance coverage, your out-of-pocket costs may be high, depending on your insurance plan. We work with manufacturers, advocacy programs and charities to see if you are eligible for any financial assistance.
Our technicians handle the shipping and delivery details of your specialty medications and monthly refills. We can provide you with your medications when you visit your UH clinic or deliver them to your home free of charge.
Our program offers monthly refill reminders, ongoing clinical monitoring and 24/7 general pharmacy support to help you succeed with your medications.

UH Specialty Pharmacy Makes It Possible
“These meds are also what keep me going and if not for the assistance of the UH Specialty Pharmacy, I would not be able to afford them. I would never have known about the financial assistance available. From day one, I decided that I wanted to make this journey with dignity and the oral chemo allows me to do that.” ~Pat D
