Managed care is a complex component within the healthcare system.

Giannotto’s Specialty Pharmacy simplifies the relationship between patient, physician, and managed care partner. We offer a wide range of high-quality pharmacy services to meet this challenge which results in improved benefits & outcomes for patients.

REMS Program Participation

We are proud to implement the FDA’s drug safety program known as Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy, or REMS, for controlled medications like Spravato. Pharmacists who dispense these medicines play a key role in ensuring that products with serious risks requiring REMS are dispensed and used safely. Working with a REMS program medication requires our pharmacy to follow highly specified procedures. These may vary for different medications but can include completing special training, verifying safe use conditions, providing counseling, and/or patient education materials. All of the is completed in an effort to help ensure the benefits of the medication outweigh its risks.
