Wonder what URAC Pharmacy Accreditation Program is right for you?

Medicare home infusion therapy suppliers must be accredited by a CMS-approved accreditation organization, such as URAC.

Exceeding Compliance Standards

Congress and CMS have mandated and supported infusion pharmacy services in patient’s homes and infusion pharmacy organizations that can validate their commitment to industry best practices will have a competitive edge in the marketplace.

URAC’s Medicare Home Infusion Therapy Supplier (MHITS) Accreditation, allows an organization to implement a comprehensive assessment of standards and practices that meet and exceed CMS requirements.

URAC, the nation’s leading independent health care accreditor, offers two accreditations in this specialty area. The standards for these two programs are the same and many pharmacies pursue both accreditations simultaneously.

  • Medicare Home Infusion Therapy Supplier Accreditation — Medicare-deemed status
  • Infusion Pharmacy Accreditation — Infusion therapy standards for all payers (except Medicare) and sites of administration

Long-Lasting Benefits

URAC’s accreditation:

  • Validates best practices in patient care and safety
  • Demonstrates coordinated patient care via a multidisciplinary team
  • Prepareds you to meet specialized reporting requirements, monitor therapy-related safety protections and other ongoing specialty considerations
