In 2012, when Express Scripts and Medco merged, each operated a specialty pharmacy service, CuraScript and Accredo, respectively. Express Scripts has begun combining these two specialty pharmacy services under the Accredo name. Beginning November 11, 2013, Harvard Pilgrim members and providers will receive certain specialty medications through Accredo rather than CuraScript. Harvard Pilgrim will continue to offer specialty medications through ICORE, as well.
The process for ordering specialty medications remains the same, including the phone and fax numbers. You may order specialty medications directly by calling or faxing a completed prescription form to either Accredo or ICORE, depending on the medication needed. Prescription forms are available from specialty pharmacy vendors upon request. These specialty pharmacies offer free overnight shipping and emergency same day delivery, via overnight mail or courier, as well as educational materials and around-the-clock telephone access to nurse and clinical pharmacists.
