Rite Aid Receives URAC Accreditation in Specialty Pharmacy

In April, Rite Aid announced that it had been awarded Specialty Pharmacy Accreditation from URAC – an independent nonprofit organization that is well-known for promoting healthcare quality through its accreditation education and measurement programs.

“We are very proud to have received full accreditation as a specialty pharmacy provider from URAC” said Robert Thompson Rite Aid executive vice president of pharmacy. “Every day Rite Aid pharmacists are committed to providing all of our patients especially those receiving specialty pharmacy treatments with the best care possible. This designation from URAC recognizes our efforts and is great achievement for our Specialty Pharmacy team.”

"By applying for and receiving URAC accreditation Rite Aid has demonstrated a commitment to quality healthcare” said URAC President and CEO Kylanne Green. “In today’s healthcare market URAC accreditation provides a mark of distinction and we applaud Rite Aid for meeting strict quality standards and achieving URAC Specialty Pharmacy accreditation.”
