Transform Specialty Medication Management

Eliminate the burden of managing specialty medications separately across the medical and pharmacy benefit. Learn how Specialty Fusion™ brings it all together for better care and lower costs.

A new way to manage specialty drug spend

Specialty medications are costly, hard to manage and are often covered under both medical and pharmacy benefits. In addition, the volume of new drugs make it difficult for providers to keep up with the best treatment options and plan sponsors struggle to control costs.


Specialty Fusion dynamically analyzes dozens of value levers on both medical and pharmacy benefits to recommend the optimal benefit, site of care and drug choice based on clinical and financial factors resulting in improved patient experiences at a lower cost of care.
