WELCOME TO THE RCCA PHARMACY
As a service to our patients, we offer the convenience of a pharmacy for certain oral medications to treat their cancer.
Medications dispensed through the RCCA pharmacy are covered by insurance and co-payments are processed in the same manner as they would be at a specialty pharmacy. Medications will be mailed to you in a timely and secure manner.
Our Pharmacy Technicians will assist you in an effort to identify alternative funding resources and pharmaceutical company assistance.
Your insurance company may require the prescription be sent out to another specialty pharmacy. In this circumstance, we will notify you, and forward the prescription to the identified specialty pharmacy.
