WILLIAMSVILLE, N.Y.- Tops Friendly Markets, a leading full-service grocery retailer in New York, northern Pennsylvania, and Vermont, is pleased to announce the official launch of the new Tops Markets Specialty Pharmacy Program. The expanded specialty pharmacy services will provide more convenient and personalized care for patients living with chronic and complex medical conditions.

The Tops Markets Specialty Pharmacy Program will allow patients to have access to specialty medications right at their local community pharmacy. Specialty medications include medications that can be complex to administer, have a high cost and/or require special storage or handling. Chronic diseases are typically treated with specialty medications and can include Rheumatoid Arthritis, Psoriatic Arthritis, Hepatitis, Psoriasis, Ulcerative Colitis, HIV/AIDS, Multiple Sclerosis, and Crohn’s Disease.

Additionally, specialty medications require strict adherence to a treatment plan to ensure successful outcomes for patients. To ensure these successful outcomes, Tops Specialty Pharmacy will become an integral part of a patient’s healthcare team. The services include providing educational resources, developing an individualized clinical care plan, coordinating insurance benefits, navigating financial assistance to help patients afford their medications, and ensuring continuous patient care throughout the course of their treatment.

In partnership with our local community Tops Pharmacists, the specialty pharmacy services will be supported by an expert team of Specialty Pharmacists and Patient Care Coordinators. Together, they will provide personalized patient center care.

“As we continue to expand the services we offer our customers, Tops is committed to making it even easier for you to get every healthy thing you need in one quick stop and that includes your pharmacy needs,” said Ron Ferri, president of Tops Friendly Markets.

In addition to the new Specialty Pharmacy Program, Tops pharmacies offer signature programs such as Immunizations, Medication Therapy Management, and medication discounts through the Tops $3.99+Plan generic program.
