The PMC Specialty Pharmacy provides medications required to treat certain diseases in a timely manner. Prior to PMC opening the specialty pharmacy, patients often had to search for ways to receive their specialty medication. Now, a team of dedicated professionals at PMC can assist in helping patients with prior authorizations and insurance questions in addition to dispensing specialized medication. PMC utilizes efficient procedures and overnight shipping to expedite the process, allowing patients to get needed medication sooner.
