The Dana-Farber pharmacy fills prescriptions for all pediatric and adult patients. Our pharmacists work closely with your physicians to provide seamless, convenient, safe care.

We stock all medications prescribed by Dana-Farber physicians and can prepare them quickly. Local pharmacies don’t always carry newer drugs, which means patients have to wait one or two days before starting treatment.

Frequently asked questions

What insurance plans does the pharmacy accept?

We accept all major plans. We also accept many insurance plans from other parts of the country.

The cost for prescriptions can vary from pharmacy to pharmacy. If you use an insurance card, the co-payment is generally the same as at any pharmacy.

Are over-the-counter medicines available?


Can patients have prescription medications mailed to them at home?

Yes, but there may be a fee to ship.

Can someone not affiliated with Dana-Farber fill prescriptions at the pharmacy?

No. Only Dana-Farber patients and staff can have their prescriptions filled at the pharmacy.
