Welcome to UMMC Specialty Pharmacy

Thank you for choosing University of Mississippi Medical Center for your medicine. Our goal is to give our patients great service and help them get better.

Here, a specially trained UMMC pharmacist and pharmacy technician work closely with your doctors and care team.

What is a Specialty Pharmacy?

A specialty pharmacy handles unusual medicines that may not be available in a neighborhood pharmacy. These rare medicines are typically used for diseases that need special treatment. Sometimes, insurance companies require special approval for these medicines before they will pay. Some of these medicines may need special handling. Almost all of them take extra patient education and support to make sure they are used correctly.

Why Choose the UMMC Specialty Pharmacy?

At our pharmacy, a specially trained pharmacist and pharmacy technician take care of your medicine. They are on staff at UMMC and work closely with your doctor and others who are helping you.

How We Can Help

The UMMC Specialty Pharmacy provides expert prescription services exclusively for UMMC patients who have complex or rare medication needs. We focus on medications for specific health conditions and treatments. If you receive care from one of UMMC's eligible locations, ask your healthcare provider if our specialty pharmacy is a good option for you. We are able to:

  • Work with insurance and drug companies to get you the best price
  • Teach you how to take your medicine
  • Mail your medicine to your home
  • Work with your doctors to make sure your medicine is working
  • Answer any questions you may have
  • Remind you when you need refills

We stay in constant touch with your doctors so we can quickly solve any medication problems that may come up.

If you get your medicine from a different drug store, you may be able to switch to us. You can ask your pharmacist how to transfer the prescription to UMMC Specialty Pharmacy.

We look forward to helping you with your special medications!

Your UMMC Specialty Pharmacy Team
