Home Infusion Therapy
Meet CMS requirements with our Home Infusion Therapy Pharmacy Accreditation.
NABP’s Home Infusion Therapy Pharmacy Accreditation meets the newest requirement by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). Pharmacies billing CMS for the administration of home infusion therapy services in a patient’s home must hold an accreditation from a CMS-approved accrediting organization to be eligible to bill home infusion therapy services to Medicare Part B.
Home Infusion Therapy Pharmacy Accreditation is a 3-year accreditation for pharmacies currently providing qualifying home infusion therapy services in a patient’s home and getting reimbursed or those that want to start billing and need the framework to begin. While CMS defines multiple skilled professionals as eligible to be qualified home infusion therapy suppliers, NABP focuses solely on licensed pharmacies.
Whether NABP accreditation is new for your business or you are already NABP accredited and are looking to expand your portfolio, our processes simplify your journey toward Home Infusion Therapy Pharmacy Accreditation.
