Verified-Accredited Wholesale Distributor

The Verified-Accredited Wholesale Distributors (VAWD) accreditation is for facilities engaged in the act of wholesale drug distribution. To become VAWD-accredited and display the VAWD Seal, facilities must undergo a criteria compliance review, which includes: a rigorous review of their operating policies and procedures; licensure verification; a survey of a facility’s operations; and screening through the NABP Clearinghouse. The accreditation is in process for all of our warehouses and we have an extension from various Insurance companies (OptumRx) to continue serving our valuable customers.
