Walgreens Specialty Pharmacy is dedicated to serving patients living with chronic and complex health and medical conditions. We serve as an extension of a provider's healthcare team: providing specialty medication access and delivery, coordinating insurance benefits and providing financial assistance coordination. Our specially trained pharmacists provide patients with medication regimen education and side effect management, which can help improve adherence to providers' prescribed therapy.

In addition to providing on-time medication delivery to a patient's home, work, provider office or healthcare facility (where available), Walgreens Specialty Pharmacy offers medication pickup at select local specialty pharmacies, disease-specific specialized locations and specialty-enabled retail pharmacies across the country (where available).
