Cancer treatment and support
When you’re diagnosed with cancer, the specialty medications you take are an important part of your treatment plan. At Optum® Specialty Pharmacy, we offer resources, programs and clinical support to help manage your medications with confidence.
Medication and treatment plans for a cancer diagnosis can be complex. Our pharmacists and patient care coordinators are specially trained in cancer care and work with you to provide extra guidance and support. We also provide oral (by mouth) and intravenous (IV) chemotherapy treatments.
To help you get started, one of our patient care coordinators will call you to set up your account and answer any questions you might have. You'll also get access to Optum® Connections, an online platform built to help you manage your condition through virtual visits, and a video series where you can:
- See how other patients with your condition have managed their diagnosis and treatment
- Get advice from clinical experts
- Learn more about your treatment and how to infuse at home, if applicable
Managing a cancer diagnosis can be overwhelming, but we'll be with you every step of the way. Learn more about Optum Connections.
