We offer flexible care designed for you
Optum Infusion Pharmacy
Our personal approach means people get the medications they need where they’re most comfortable, either at home or at an infusion suite.
Access condition-specific services, treatment monitoring, and a patient advocacy team that can help to find financial aid and help with appeals, if needed.
Coordinated services make it easy to get care, so you can focus on your health.
Complex conditions require specialized care
We take a hands-on approach to patient care. This means that we work with you and your medical team to make decisions based on what’s best for your complex needs.
With infusion pharmacies and nurses across the country, we can administer high-quality, cost-effective infusion therapies for short- and long-term conditions in the comfort of your home or a nearby outpatient infusion suite. Therapy can be given in one of two ways: intravenous (IV) or subcutaneous (SC).
Either way, you have 24/7 access to a team of experts (including pharmacists, nurses and dietitians), advocates and tools to help you stay on track with your therapy.

Meet Chad, an infusion therapy patient
The idea of starting home infusion can feel overwhelming and intimidating. But it might be one of the best ways for you to take control of your health, your independence and your life.
Myasthenia gravis is an autoimmune disease.
Myasthenia gravis...the term actually means, um, extreme fatigue or muscle fatigue.
And it's a disease that...some people might have an eye that just drags a little bit.
Other people lose the ability to breathe.
I'm on that end of the spectrum.
So for me it...it can shut my body down.
Um...and so I'm...learning to live with that.
My first nurse, Hallie, she...she just became one of the family.
I mean, she was as concerned about my health
as my wife or my mother or anybody was.
She advocated for me if things were bad and I had to go to the hospital.
She would talk to people that she knew and help me through the process.
And she just made sure that, at my home, when she came,
That it was just comfortable. Everything was comfortable.
I've learned that so many things don't matter that I thought mattered before, you know?
I think the new me just has a different outlook.
I appreciate things more, and don't let stuff bug me like I used to.
So I would say, you know, just breathe...
And take advantage of what they have there for you.
It's not as scary as it feels. It's not as scary as it feels.
They explained that I would be getting an infusion every 4-6 weeks… and there would be a nurse that does the home infusion. …I ended up with Jill, who is my nurse now, and it has been a brilliant experience.– Scott, home infusion patient

Infusion video series
When you’re going through infusion therapy, sometimes you can feel like you’re facing it alone. Our video series can help you to feel more connected to others receiving the same therapy and give you a chance to learn more about your treatment.
We send you a private link to videos about your therapy that you can watch on your mobile phone, tablet or computer throughout the course of your treatment. You can watch them at any time and share the videos with your caregivers.
These videos can help you to better understand:
- How home infusion works
- How to prevent and manage side effects from your treatment
- How your diet and other lifestyle choices can help you to live a healthier life
- How to access resources for support
Our pharmacists, nurses, patient care coordinators and benefits experts deliver full-service acute and chronic specialty infusion care, so patients and providers can focus on treatment, not obstacles.
