Mail Order & Specialty Pharmacy Accreditation
Humana Pharmacy is accredited by ACHC, URAC, and VIPPS and participates in the .pharmacy program. Accreditation Commission for Health Care (ACHC) is a nonprofit accreditation organization that has stood as a symbol of quality and excellence since 1986. URAC is an independent, nonprofit organization that establishes quality standards for the healthcare industry. The VIPPS accreditation program is a strong indicator of an internet pharmacy's compliance with state and federal laws and regulations, and the criteria of the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy® (NABP). The NABP's .pharmacy program provides consumers with the ability to easily identify and use safe and accredited online pharmacies1.
Why is accreditation important?
To receive accreditation, Humana Pharmacy had to meet strict quality standards with a commitment to quality and accountability. URAC accreditation assures consumers that Humana Pharmacy has processes in place to deliver prescriptions in a timely and accurate manner. Humana Pharmacy fills millions of prescriptions a year. The VIPPS Seal demonstrates that Humana Pharmacy is committed to its patients' health and safety. The NABP, recognizing the ongoing and critical need for patients' medications to be managed by a licensed pharmacist and for their medications to be appropriately sourced in accordance with applicable standards of care, created the .pharmacy program to help legitimate pharmacy sites stand out against the overwhelming number of rogue internet drug outlets.

How can consumers verify their online pharmacy is safe?
Consumers wishing to purchase medicine through online sites can confirm the validity and accreditation of the website by visiting www.safe.pharmacy to confirm that the pharmacy participates in the .pharmacy program.

How does it work?
