Q: How do I fill a prescription for a specialty medication for the first time?

A: In most cases, your doctor or local community pharmacy will contact us to request your new specialty pharmacy prescription. AllyScripts will then contact you directly to gather any additional information needed, including scheduling delivery to the most convenient location for you, whether it is your home, doctor’s office or your pharmacy.

Q: How do I know if my specialty medications are covered by insurance?

A: AllyScripts will handle this process for you by coordinating with your insurance company and your

doctor. Many specialty drugs require prior authorization which means that the insurance company needs documentation before they will cover a high-cost drug. AllyScripts will notify you as soon as possible about the result of this process.
