A specialty pharmacy mandate is an insurer policy that requires beneficiaries to acquire and pay for some or all medical benefit drugs through a specialty pharmacy bypassing the traditional buy-and-bill model. Once paid for in-full (generally, by the patient), the specialty pharmacy then either ships the drug to the infusion center directly ("white bagging") or ships the drug directly to the patient's home who then brings the drug to the infusion center for the appointment ("brown bagging"). Due to unknown storage and handling conditions, infusion providers generally do not accept "brown bagged" medications.
