Driscoll Health Pharmacy – Specialty Pharmacy Services
Welcome to Driscoll Health Pharmacy!
Driscoll Health Pharmacy is a specialty pharmacy. We provide specialty medicines used to treat rare, complex, or long-term health problems. We understand that living with a chronic disease or serious illness can be hard and confusing at times – our goal is to provide the knowledge, support, and peace of mind needed to get the best results from your specialty medicine.
Specialty medicines are usually expensive and hard to get from your local pharmacy. When you are taking a specialty medicine, you may need extra training and education. You may need help with your insurance and financial assistance. We go above and beyond the typical pharmacy to make sure your specialty medicines work for you.
As a specialty pharmacy patient, you can expect:
- Customized services for your unique needs
- Pharmacist support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week (including weekends and holidays)
- Ongoing training and education in person or over the phone
- Help with insurance and financial assistance programs
- Regular refill reminders and follow-ups
- Fast and easy medicine delivery
Our friendly and knowledgeable team will work closely with you and your doctor to provide the highest quality care. We know you have many options to choose from, and we thank you for choosing Driscoll Health Pharmacy!

Our team will work with your doctor and insurance company to help get your medication covered. This process is called prior authorization. Prior authorizations may take a few days to complete, but we will let you know what is going on along the way.
Specialty drugs can be expensive, even after insurance pays most of the cost. If you cannot afford your medicine, we can help find available financial assistance programs to lower your out-of-pocket expense. You may be asked to fill out forms in order to get these benefits.
