As we announced in last month’s issue of Network Matters, Harvard Pilgrim has selected CVS Specialty as our preferred specialty pharmacy, effective July 1, 2017.
CVS Specialty will provide specialty medications and additional education for your Harvard Pilgrim patients, and will collaborate with you on the close monitoring of their clinical response. They will also manage benefit investigations, determine plan coverage, and communicate financial obligations to the patient.
CVS Specialty will provide these services for all the medications noted in our Specialty Pharmacy Drug List.
Beginning on July 1, 2017, please contact CVS Specialty to order or renew any of these specialty medications for your Harvard Pilgrim patients. All previously approved prior authorizations will remain in effect for the originally approved time frames. You may submit an order for a specialty medication to CVS Specialty in one of the following ways:
- Call toll-free at 800-237-2767 (from 7:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. ET)
- E-prescribe by visiting CVS Specialty online at www.CVSspecialty.com
- Fax your specialty prescriptions to 800-323-2445
If one or more of your Harvard Pilgrim patients is currently taking a specialty medication, you will receive a letter this month from Harvard Pilgrim and CVS Specialty with the relevant patient and drug information. These members will also receive letters informing them about our new partnership with CVS Specialty.
If you have any further questions about this change, please contact the Provider Service Center at 800-708-4414.
