August 28, 2023

EAGAN, Minn. Prime Therapeutics LLC (Prime)/Magellan Rx (MRx) is proud to announce that Magellan Rx Pharmacy, LLC (Magellan Rx), MRx’s specialty pharmacy, has earned URAC reaccreditation for Specialty Pharmacy.

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. By achieving this status, MRx demonstrates commitment to quality care, enhanced processes, patient safety and improved outcomes.

“Central to our mission is helping patients with complex conditions navigate their specialty care journey while ensuring delivery of the highest quality and most humane care,” said Mostafa Kamal, president and CEO for Prime Therapeutics. “As an organization, we are all validated by this accomplishment. And we will continue to deliver medicines through the best channel for people’s needs, while remaining restlessly focused on meeting the moment for those we serve.”

URAC relies on a multidisciplinary advisory group to guide standards development, establish benchmarks and inform revisions. This group includes payers, physicians, hospitals, its Board of Directors, URAC’s Standards Committees and other industry experts. The standards are then circulated for public comment and beta-tested before their release. This broad, inclusive process assures that URAC’s standards promote industry best practices.

URAC’s comprehensive standards and associated elements of performance are organized into four foundational focus areas across all accreditation and certification programs:

  • Risk management
  • Operations infrastructure
  • Performance monitoring and improvement
  • Consumer protection and empowerment

Streamlining more than 40 core standards into these focus areas makes the process more seamless and enables URAC to conduct accreditation evaluations more quickly and efficiently.

“Pharmacies and related pharmaceutical services play a critical role in the health care delivery system now more than ever. Given the complicated nature of chronic disease, pharmacies like Magellan Rx Pharmacy do much more than simply fill a prescription. As trusted experts at the frontline of care delivery, they often provide targeted patient support and education to ensure proper medication management,” said URAC President and CEO Shawn Griffin, M.D.
