We are Experts in Specialty Medications
As one of the leading and most experienced providers of specialty pharmacy services, CVS Specialty understands the complex nature of injectable, infused and select oral medications. We are committed to helping patients make the best decisions about their health care. We do this by providing education and support specific to a patient's condition, as well as helping patients learn how they can take their medications correctly and safely.

CVS Specialty goes beyond just providing medications. In fact, filling your prescriptions is just the beginning. As part of our service, we also offer counseling regarding your condition, and how to get the most from your medicine. In addition, you can call our pharmacists and nurses 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, for emergency consultations - please call the toll-free number listed on your prescription label.
