Specialty medications are typically bio-engineered and have specific shipping and handling requirements or are required to be dispensed by a specific facility. PEHP has partnered with Accredo to assist in dispensing most specialty drugs.
Receiving your specialty drug from Accredo or a contracted specialty vendor will assure you pay the lowest cost. (Benefit design may differ. Refer to your Benefits Summary.) Also, PEHP may require some specialty medications to be obtained from Accredo.
Accredo will coordinate with you or your doctor to provide delivery to either your home or your provider’s office.
Specialty medications may require preauthorization. Check the Preauthorization list or call PEHP at 801-366-7555 or 800-765-7347 to see if yours does.
