All MEDISCA Facilities are VAWD Accredited

 
MEDISCA is proud to announce that all its facilities have achieved Verified-Accredited Wholesale Distributors (VAWD) accreditation.

In October 2016, Pharmacy Benefit Manager OptumRx stopped accepting claims for medications purchased from suppliers who are not VAWD accredited. Following this decision, MEDISCA previously announced that its distribution facilities located in Plattsburgh, New York and Las Vegas, Nevada, were VAWD accredited and that its Irving, Texas facility was actively in pursuit of this accreditation.

Now that the Irving location has successfully completed the approval process, all our facilities are now compliant with OptumRx requirements. Regardless of where your shipment of compounding ingredients originates from, the MEDISCA facility has undergone the rigorous review by the National Associations of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP).

Developed and administered by the NABP, the VAWD program helps ensure that the wholesale distribution facility operates legitimately, is licensed in good standing, and is employing security and best practices for a safe distribution of prescription drugs.

MEDISCA continuously seeks ways to increase the standard of quality of its products and is dedicated to achieving the highest level of compliance.
