Another Option for Filling Specialty Prescriptions

It’s likely your Empire plan requires you to fill prescriptions for specialty drugs by mail order through our specialty pharmacy. A New York law also gives you another choice. You may be able to go to your local retail pharmacy if the pharmacy agrees to the prices and other contract terms and conditions of our specialty network pharmacy. 
If your local pharmacy is willing to agree to this, they can become a network specialty pharmacy. And you’ll be able to fill those prescriptions with them. To start the process, just have them call us. Contact our pharmacy benefit manager by calling 1-888-571-8182, and pick option 4. But this is just one more option. You can still rely on the convenience of getting your specialty drugs delivered right to your home through our network specialty pharmacy. 
Note: This also applies to maintenance drugs you may get by mail from our mail order pharmacy.
