After your doctor prescribes NovoSeven® RT, you’ll get your factor from a specialty pharmacy distributor, hemophilia home care agency, or a hemophilia treatment center.

Why specialty pharmacies?

Insurance providers use specialty pharmacies because they generally have more sophisticated systems to handle the complexities of factor therapy for people with bleeding disorders.
