We are taking every action possible to protect our patients, our clinical staff and the community from COVID-19. Learn more about how you can protect yourself. 


At Optum Specialty Pharmacy, we take your health seriously. This has become even more important with the recent spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus).

Our first priority is making sure you have your medication and supplies. We have a large supply of medications. We are working hard with our partners to make sure you get what you need.

At this time, we are experiencing high call volumes and longer than usual wait times. If you need to refill or track a prescription, we suggest you use our patient website.

How can I request a refill for my specialty prescription online?

  • If you have not registered for a secure patient account, you will need your personal details and your Optum Specialty Pharmacy prescription number available. You can find this number on a recent medication label or on your invoice or statement.
  • Most specialty medications can be refilled online. Some medications for more complex treatments may still require you to speak with a patient care coordinator. Your specific therapy team is able to help and phone numbers are listed in your patient account.
  • You can download the Optum Specialty Pharmacy mobile app by searching for Optum Specialty Pharmacy in the App Store or Google Play.

Can I send you a new specialty prescription or transfer a specialty prescription online?

  • At this time, if you have a new prescription or need to transfer a medication to Optum Specialty Pharmacy from another pharmacy, you need to call us at 1-855-427-4682.

How can I check my order status online?

  • Check your order status by signing in to your secure patient account or through our mobile app and click on “Order Tracking”.

Is there a shortage of medications?

How do I update my shipping or billing information?
