What Are Specialty Pharmacy Drugs?
Specialty drugs are high-cost medications and biotech drugs that require special ordering, handling, and/or administration. They include treatments for cancer, autoimmune diseases, multiple sclerosis, HIV, infertility, and other chronic medical conditions.
Specialty drugs are the fastest-growing segment in the pharmacy industry and represent the majority of drugs being brought to market. Spending has shifted from traditional to specialty medications. Specialty now represents over 40% of many pharmacy budgets. And many predict that cost will continue to rise over the coming years.
