Tops Friendly Markets Launching Specialty Pharmacy Program

Tops Markets LLC has officially launched the new Tops Markets Specialty Pharmacy Program. The grocer’s expanded specialty pharmacy services will provide more convenient and personalized care for patients with chronic and complex medical conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, hepatitis, psoriasis, ulcerative colitis, HIV/AIDS, multiple sclerosis and Crohn’s disease.

Under the program, patients have access to specialty medications, which can be complex to administer, have a high cost, and/or require special storage or handling, at their local community pharmacies.

Since specialty medications require strict adherence to a treatment plan to ensure successful outcomes for patients, Tops Specialty Pharmacy will become an integral part of a patient’s health care team.  Services include:

Patients – dedicated team of Pharmacists, Patient Care Coordinators and Pharmacy Technicians are highly experienced professionals specialty trained to provide clinical, financial, educational and emotional support personalized to meet the unique needs of patients.

The company enables its patients to achieve optimal outcomes through the delivery of the highest quality specialty pharmacy solutions.
  • Payors – the specialty pharmacy solutions have been designed to provide the most comprehensive medication management services to optimize clinical and financial outcomes.
  • Manufacturers – Tops Markets Specialty Pharmacy is capable of much more than just dispensing medication, they offer comprehensive specialty pharmacy care and support services that deliver results for pharmaceutical manufacturer partners.

In November 2021, Price Chopper/Market 32 and Tops Markets completed their merger. Under the agreement, the two companies are managed locally by their respective leaders and continue to be referred to by their established banners, but will be owned and overseen by a new parent company, Northeast Grocery Inc.  Tope Markets has approximately 150 supermarkets, including five franchise stores, in New York, northern Pennsylvania and Vermont.
