Hy-Vee Inc. said Monday that it has agreed to buy Amber Pharmacy, a specialty pharmacy solutions provider based in Omaha. The two companies have been partners in Hy-Vee Pharmacy Solutions since 2010, and the acquisition will allow Hy-Vee to expand its current specialty pharmacy business, providing customers with increased specialty options, access and affordability. Specialty pharmacies help patients manage complex, chronic conditions by assigning them a health care team and developing an individual plan tailored to the patient's care, insurance coverage and to financial assistance.
