Leading manufacturers select Avella as a partner for limited distribution drugs based on our expertise and dedication to clinical excellence.
Some medications are supplied by many different specialty pharmacies throughout the nation. Limited distribution drugs, on the other hand, are only available through a select few. These pharmacies are typically identified by pharmaceutical manufacturers as having the highest standards for clinical expertise, patient education, service, treatment monitoring and support.
Avella is extremely proud to have been selected as a limited distribution drug partner by manufacturers for many different medications over the years, and we go above and beyond to earn this distinction within every patient and provider interaction. This includes our relationship with Braeburn Pharmaceuticals as the exclusive provider of the Probuphine (buprenorphine) Implant for treatment of opioid addiction.
In fact, many manufacturers choose us time and time again whenever a limited distribution drug is ready for launch because of our:
- High touch patient services—including ongoing support, guidance and education
- Decades of industry experience
- Broad payor coverage
- Local partnerships and strong relationships with prescribers
- Provider portal that offers real-time prescription status and custom reporting
- National scope and distribution
Limited distribution is most commonly designated for medications treating certain specialties like oncology, which have regimens that can be extremely complex to manage. Limited distribution drugs are also available for the treatment of infectious diseases, ophthalmological disorders and rare medical conditions. However, industry trends are starting to show that even specialists like rheumatologists may start seeing more limited-distribution access to the latest therapies. That’s because manufacturers have found that the expertise and experience of top specialty pharmacies can help them maintain the highest standards for patient safety, medication adherence and quality outcomes.
Avella has access to the vast majority of specialty drugs, including those that are the most difficult to attain. The following is the list of limited distribution medications available at Avella.
