Your provider will send the prescription to our specialty pharmacy. Our staff will begin the process of enrolling you in our specialized patient management program service that includes education about how and when to take your medication, how to manage potential side effects and ongoing clinical evaluation and support. Our specialty pharmacy’s patient management program is provided to you at no additional cost.
You may order refills by:
If you have lost your medication or supplies, or if you need your prescription(s) in advance of travel, please call our specialty pharmacy and our staff will work with you and your insurance company to ensure that your medications are covered and that there is no lapse in therapy.
Once the prescription is ordered and dispensed, it can be picked up at our Dallas office at: 8390 Lyndon B. Johnson Freeway, 1st floor, Suite 175, Dallas, TX 75243
The patient can always pick up their medication(s) from our pharmacy or a free delivery to their home can be scheduled.
Our team works with your insurance company to help get your specialty prescription covered. You may have to pay a copay each time a medicine is filled. We will tell you the exact amount you need to pay. The copay amount for a specialty pharmacy medication may still be high, despite having your insurance company pay for most of the cost. Our team will research various financial assistance programs available to possibly lower your medication therapy cost. We may ask you to fill out a patient medication assistance program authorization form in order to provide these services.
Some medicines need documentation for costs to be covered. This process is called prior authorization. Our team has the expertise to process this paperwork, which may take a few business days to complete. Our team keeps you and your doctor informed throughout the process, especially if there are expected delays. If insurance denies coverage for your medicine, our team can help your doctor file an appeal.
If your insurance plan considers our pharmacy an out-of-network pharmacy, we will inform you of the cost to fill your medicine with us. Our staff will transfer your prescription to an in-network pharmacy if there is a cost savings to you.
Any balances must be paid prior to your next refill. We accept credit/debit cards, cash, personal checks and most flexible spending accounts. If you get a check from your insurance company, you should send it to our specialty pharmacy with a copy of the Explanation of Benefits (also known as the EOB) statement you received. If you have any questions regarding this, please call us at: 469-498-1710 or Toll Free: 877-460-3120. If you need help arranging a payment plan for the balance you owe, we will be happy to help you set up a payment plan. Please call us to discuss your situation.
Our specialty pharmacy can dispense for most insurance companies. Occasionally, your insurance company will require the use of another pharmacy for specialty medication needs. In these instances, we will transfer your prescription and have the new pharmacy contact you.
From time to time, it is necessary to substitute generic drugs for brand-name drugs. This could occur due to your insurance company preferring the generic be dispensed or to reduce your copay. If a substitution needs to be made, and after careful consideration by your caregiver/pharmacist team, a member of our pharmacy team will contact you prior to dispensing the medication to inform you of the substitution.
You should call our specialty pharmacy team if:
Yes. Follow your doctor’s instructions for both the amount of the medication you should take and the length of time you should take it. We understand that some medications may have unpleasant side effects or be difficult to take or give. Our pharmacists are available to offer practical advice about dealing with these issues and can help you contact your prescriber about the medical management of these side effects.
