Special Pricing for Small Specialty Pharmacies

Small pharmacies who earn URAC’s Specialty Pharmacy Accreditation are in great demand because they demonstrate to payers and manufacturers their processes can attract patients and deliver quality care to their pharmacy business.

URAC offers you the same Specialty Pharmacy Accreditation prized by large organizations at a highly affordable price. No matter what your size, URAC accreditation will advance your organizational quality as well as increase opportunities to participate in additional networks. An added benefit is that eligible small independent pharmacies may self-report metrics, saving them fees associated with validation requirements and measurement submission.

Small Pharmacy Participation Criteria

URAC welcomes a conversation to discuss your organization and special pricing, which involve criteria such as:

  1. Total revenue in the most recent fiscal year
  2. Closely held company status
  3. Community pharmacy or closed-door pharmacy model
