Pharmacy Services for Patients


Many of the patients treated at Versiti Comprehensive Center for Bleeding Disorders (CCBD) choose to obtain their clotting factor products from Versiti’s pharmacy. Our pharmacy staff is part of the comprehensive care team at CCBD and specialize in the medications you need to manage your condition. This integrated care approach means that pharmacists are in close communication with the CCBD care team and are kept informed regarding product requirements and treatment schedules.

Because CCBD is a federally recognized hemophilia treatment center (HTC), we are able to participate in the U.S. government’s 340B Drug Pricing Program. This program allows us to purchase the medications at a discounted rate and pass on the savings to the patients we serve. The 340B program saves our patients money, maximizes insurance benefits and reduces the total cost to the healthcare system.

Our patient services coordinator and the pharmacy team are here to:

  • Customize our services to meet individual needs
  • Arrange delivery of medications directly to patients’ homes
  • Provide all ancillary supplies needed
  • Bill insurance companies on patients’ behalf
  • Provide information on manufacturer copay assistance and other programs
  • Arrange for training on home infusion techniques through the CCBD clinical team
  • Provide sharps containers for waste removal

Versiti’s pharmacy provides a comprehensive line of products from all manufacturers, including:

  • FVIII products to treat hemophilia A
  • FIX products to treat hemophilia B
  • Bypass agents to treat inhibitors
  • von Willebrand concentrates to treat von Willebrand disease
  • Other products used to treat rare bleeding disorders
