Leading retail mail-order pharmacy becomes 20th pharmacy in United States to receive accreditation
CINCINNATI, May 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- HealthWarehouse.com, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: HEWA), a leading retail mail-order pharmacy, announced today it has received Verified Internet Pharmacy Practice Sites(CM) (VIPPS(CM)) accreditation from The National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP). The Company becomes one of only twenty pharmacies to be VIPPS accredited in the United States.
According to NABP which has reviewed nearly 6,000 websites, "less than 4% of online pharmacies appear to be in compliance with pharmacy law and practice standards. Rogue pharmacies put patients at risk of receiving counterfeit or adulterated medications. VIPPS accreditation ensures that an Internet pharmacy is a bona fide pharmacy, and it is the best way for patients to determine that they are getting the quality care they deserve."
"As a leading retail mail-order pharmacy, VIPPS accreditation is another major validation and milestone for us," said Lalit Dhadphale, President & CEO. "We applaud the NABP for maintaining strict guidelines to protect the U.S. consumer and are delighted to be one of only twenty VIPPS accredited pharmacies in the United States."
