Members News

Geisinger Mail-Order Pharmacy has earned the Utilization Review Accreditation Commission (URAC) accreditation for Mail Service Pharmacy and Geisinger Specialty Pharmacy received re-accreditation from URAC Specialty Pharmacy Accreditation. By achieving these accreditations, the mail-order and specialty pharmacies continue their personalized approach to the specialized pharmacy and medication needs of their patients.

“Geisinger Pharmacy finds ways to provide our patients affordable options when it comes to their prescriptions and other pharmacy needs,” said Michael Evans, chief pharmacy officer for Geisinger. “As a URAC-accredited organization, we meet rigorous standards for health care quality, safety and accountability while continuing to make better health easier for our patients in central Pennsylvania.”

URAC is the independent leader in promoting health care quality by setting high standards for clinical practice, consumer protections, performance measurement, operations infrastructure and risk management.

“Mail service and specialty pharmacies provide a critical connection for patients receiving specialized pharmaceutical care,” said URAC President and CEO Shawn Griffin, M.D. “URAC’s Mail Service Pharmacy Accreditation recognizes excellence in the areas of pharmacy operations, medication distribution and patient service and communication, all of which are valuable components of the patient care experience.”

Geisinger Specialty Pharmacy also received reaccreditation through the Accreditation Commission for Health Care (ACHC) in 2023. To learn more about pharmacy options through Geisinger, visit
