When the term “Specialty Pharmacy” is used, it means a contracting pharmacy that provides covered Specialty
Medication used to treat covered chronic or acute illnesses. Specialty Medication may be either oral or an
The contracting Specialty Pharmacy offers services to manage Specialty Medications, including training from
pharmacists and nurses on the proper use of Specialty Medications. Specialty Medications often require special
storage and handling not available from a retail pharmacy.
Effective December 1, 2010, Prescription Solutions Specialty Pharmacy replaces CuraScript as the contracting
Specialty Pharmacy. Eligible individuals currently using covered Specialty Medications were notified on October
25, 2010 by Prescription Solutions and those individuals will subsequently be contacted by a Prescription Solutions
Specialty Pharmacy team member, by phone, shortly before December 1, 2010 to coordinate the transition to
Prescription Solutions Specialty Pharmacy.
This Announcement is a reminder to Participants about the requirement, under the Health and Welfare Plan, that
eligible individuals who use covered Specialty Medications must use the Fund’s contracting Specialty Pharmacy
for covered Specialty Medications that are either 1) self-administered (oral or injectable), or 2) administered at the
doctor’s office. Injectables are covered only if they are on the list of covered injectables and they are obtained
from and distributed under a program managed by the Plan’s Specialty Pharmacy. Some covered injectables,
such as insulin and Imitrex®, are not Specialty Medications and as such they may be obtained from a retail
contracting or non-contracting pharmacy (although you may experience a higher share of cost using non-
contracting pharmacies), or the Prescription Solutions Mail Service Pharmacy.
If you have questions about Specialty Pharmacy and whether any medication you are taking is considered a
Specialty Medication, call Prescription Solutions at 1 (866) 218-5445 or visit the web site at
