    “We passed URAC accreditation for our specialty pharmacy with flying colors!”

    The surveyors were very complimentary of all related documentation and were particularly pleased with the integration of services offered, which includes Pharmacy, HR, Compliance, Marketing, and IT.

    “This accreditation will allow manufacturers to provide UK access to additional specialty medications, enable UK to contract with larger providers, and encourages PBMs to carve UK into their networks.
