Specialty Drugs
The introduction of new and useful biopharmaceutical medications to treat chronic diseases or genetic disorders is complex and expensive. This has resulted in the explosive growth of a new type of drug delivery system known as Specialty Pharmacy. The OU Health Plan utilizes EmpiRx’s mail order partner¬† company Benecard Central Fill for specialty medications.

EmpiRx is dedicated to providing pharmacy management services to patients and their families/caregivers.

EmpiRx Health delivers care to patients who require specialty medications, injectable pharmaceuticals and complex treatment regimens. Their pharmacy focuses on safe, effective administration and home delivery of these drugs while offering the highest levels of compassionate, personalized patient care.

Note to all members: This year, please consider obtaining the flu shot in October, before the flu season starts, as medical experts have advised co-exposure to both COVID-19 and the flu could result in serious illness such as pneumonia and respiratory distress, hospitalization or even death. This is possible because the flu and COVID-19 are caused by different viruses.
