Perfect score highlights company’s commitment to clinical, operational excellence, and customer service

San Diego, CA (05/08/2020) -- MedImpact, the health solutions and pharmacy benefit management company, today announced that it earned URAC accreditation for pharmacy benefit management (PBM), scoring 100% across all six modules of quality standards.

FROM OUR LEADERS

“We are unwavering in our commitment to healthcare quality and hold ourselves to the highest standards.”

DALE BROWN MEDIMPACT PRESIDENT

"While we are proud to achieve a perfect score across all of URAC’s six PBM quality measures, we have a culture of continuous improvement and, when it comes to quality and customer service, we are never satisfied," continued Brown.

URAC is a non-profit that promotes health care quality through the accreditation of organizations involved in medical care. URAC benchmarks organizations against nationally recognized standards and supports improvements and innovation in healthcare management and delivery.

The URAC accreditation for PBM covers six quality modules: drug utilization management, customer service/disclosures, pharmacy network distribution, pharmacy and therapeutics and formulary development, core business practices, and performance measures.

“URAC accreditation shows that MedImpact is a pharmacy benefit management organization able to adhere to standards that cover important aspects of care such as claims processing, developing proper drug formulary, and consumer access,” said URAC President and CEO Shawn Griffin, M.D. “Quality policies and procedures are paramount as the price and complexity of medications rise. MedImpact chose to demonstrate their performance through URAC’s independent accreditation of their services.”
