WOONSOCKET- In recognition of quality service, CVS Caremark Corp.’s mail pharmacy service was awarded accreditation by independent health care certification organization URAC, CVS announced Monday.

URAC is a Washington-based nonprofit agency that established independent standards for the healthcare industry. Earlier this month, URAC awarded CVS the specialty pharmacy accreditation.

“CVS Caremark is committed to providing high quality mail pharmacy services because we recognize that mail is such an important dispensing mechanism in opening access and reducing costs in pharmacy care,” Jon Roberts, president of CVS Caremark’s Pharmacy Benefit Management business, said in a statement.

CVS Caremark’s mail service pharmacy predominantly serves patients who suffer from chronic conditions and must receive medications in 90 day supplies.

The URAC evaluates mail services based on factors including customer service, organizational standards, and mail drug management standard, among other parameters.

“In today’s health care market, URAC accreditation provides a mark of distinction for organizations to demonstrate their commitment to quality health care.” William Vandervennet, URAC chief operating officer, said in prepared remarks.
