Humana Specialty Pharmacy, a part of Humana Pharmacy, manages therapies for chronic and complex illnesses while providing patients with both clinical and educational services customized to their individual needs and treatment goals.
Humana Specialty Pharmacy recently announced two significant additions to its comprehensive, personalized and targeted oncology therapies. Patients can now receive the following drugs, delivered to their front doors, while Humana Specialty Pharmacy supports them along their journey:
- TAGRISSO® (osimertinib), a drug that helps certain patients with epidermal growth factor receptor-mutated (EGFRm) non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) manage their disease.
- LENVIMA® (lenvatinib), a drug that helps patients with different forms of cancer, including certain types of thyroid, liver and kidney cancers.
Patients who receive TAGRISSO and LENVIMA from Humana Specialty Pharmacy also benefit from its Oncology Center of Excellence where Humana Specialty Pharmacy patient advocates and specialty pharmacists are available to provide invaluable treatment guidance, including help with managing daily symptoms, assistance on how and when to take medications, and any other questions they may have with respect to staying on their therapy.
Humana Specialty Pharmacy’s Oncology Cancer Center of Excellence’s dedicated team of specialty pharmacists offer personalized outreach to help maximize the outcomes of cancer therapy in the following ways:
- Provide instructions on how to correctly take medicines, including injection techniques and storage requirements.
- Conduct confidential reviews to ensure that any other medicine or supplement doesn’t interact with treatment(s).
- Work with the doctor to adjust therapy if patients are experiencing side effects.
- Nurses watch out for patients’ well-being.
- Dedicated patient care coordinators.
Humana Specialty Pharmacy’s Center of Excellence offers financial assistance specialists who can help patients find patient financial assistance programs from manufacturers or charitable organizations that may help pay for some or all of the cost of cancer medicines.
Takeaway: Humana Specialty Pharmacy is able to differentiate its service and experience to patients through its Oncology Center of Excellence
