Financial support coordination from the Care Team

The Walgreens Specialty Pharmacy Care Team can help you find ways to make your specialty medication more affordable. We do everything we can to match you with manufacturer, copay and discount programs that may help cover the cost of medications not covered by insurance, or help with co-payments that may still be too much to afford.

When you call the Care Team, we can:

  • Discuss your financial need
  • Identify programs you may be eligible for
  • Coordinate your application for assistance

Expertise to help you save money

A recent patient was in sticker shock from the cost of a new cancer medication. Fortunately, Walgreens Specialty Pharmacy Care Team member, Araceli Martinez identified a nonprofit foundation that offered funds to help pay for the medication based on the patient's diagnosis. The patient's monthly copay went from $2,846 to $10. These results aren't typical, but the attention to detail and care Araceli and all Walgreens Specialty Pharmacy Care Team members give our patients is.
