In a letter to pharmacy providers, dated August 11, 2016, Pharmacy Benefit Manager (PBM) OptumRx announced that effective October 1, 2016, they will only accept billed claims for products purchased from suppliers who have Verified-Accredited Wholesale Distributor (VAWD) accreditation. This accreditation sets a standard that is crucial in the United States drug supply.
Yavari has been granted an extension by OptumRx while we undergo the the process of becoming VAWD accredited. Yavari’s unwavering commitment to deliver top quality products while maintaining excellence in our distribution processes is something we do not take lightly. The extension ensures that all products purchased from Yavari will continue to be reimbursed on OptumRx claims without disruption.
