Aetna Specialty Pharmacy® fills prescriptions for specialty drugs*. These types of drugs may be injected, infused or taken by mouth. Usually, you can't get these drugsat a local retail pharmacy. And they're not at Aetna's mail-order pharmacy, Aetna Rx Home Delivery®.
Specialty drugs often need special storage and handling. And they need to be delivered quickly.
