Diplomat Specialty Pharmacy Receives Prestigious URAC Specialty Pharmacy
Accreditation: Flint-based Diplomat Specialty Pharmacy, the nation’s largest privately held specialty pharmacy company servicing the needs of patients and physicians nationwide, is pleased to announce it has received specialty pharmacy accreditation from URAC. URAC is the national leader in promoting health care quality, with more than 20 different accreditation and certification programs across the continuum of care. The top US health plans hold URAC accreditation and URAC has accredited hundreds of organizations in all 50 states. In the area of specialty pharmacy, URAC offers the only third-party, voluntary accreditation program of its scope for the pharmacy benefit management and prescription services industry. All standards were developed by URAC’s Pharmacy Advisory Committee, which includes a wide range of stakeholders: employers, consumers, pharmacy consultants, health plans, retail pharmacy, pharmacy benefit management organizations, pharmacy professional organizations; labor, and large public purchasing groups. The URAC accreditation comes as Diplomat continues to expand its already broad reach in the specialty pharmacy niche. In November, the Company was selected by Exelixis to serve as the exclusive specialty pharmacy for the new FDA approved cancer drug Cometriq.
