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 way 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.
The oral drugs your RCCA physician recommends for treatment are prepared and provided by RCCA’s specialized pharmacists and pharmacy technicians. We can also coordinate the prescription being filled by the specialty pharmacy of your choice. (Non-oral and some oral medications may need to be dispensed by other pharmacies.)
Our team strives to take the worry, and the runaround, out of securing your oral medications in a number of ways:
When it comes to understanding chemotherapy medications, interactions, and what to expect and watch for, RCCA’s oncology-specific pharmacists lead the way. We’re here to make sure you have the medication, information and help you need. Our pharmacy professionals are extremely dedicated, caring and professional.
You can rest assured that your chemotherapy treatment has been planned, prepared and dispensed with skill and precision. Our oncology pharmacists and technicians are dedicated to ensuring the accuracy, safety and effectiveness of your medications.
Note: You are not obligated to have your prescriptions filled through the RCCA pharmacy and may receive your medications from a specialty pharmacy of your choice.
