Meet high quality standards with accreditation for Limited DMEPOS and Full Line DMEPOS Pharmacy.

Today's pharmacies come in all shapes and sizes. Your products and services can range from small and niche to large and comprehensive. HQAA offers an accreditation product that meets the specific requirements to provide Part B HME products and supplies within all pharmacies — whether you are providing full line HME products or are a community Retail pharmacy with limited HME products. Our limited DMEPOS and full line DMEPOS pharmacy accreditation program is tailored specifically to your needs.

Meeting the standards online — and offline.

While HQAA places great emphasis on thorough online documentation review, our on-site surveys are every bit as meticulous. All site visits are unannounced and not only verify the submitted documentation, but include detailed observation of patient care and processes. As a result, HQAA consistently garners high customer satisfaction ratings with their accredited providers.

"The reason we chose HQAA was that HQAA WAS OUR SOLUTION ... we can pursue accreditation at times that fit our schedule. At first the Internet design was intimidating to me, but now I realize that HQAA is our only hope of maintaining high standards in our business."
— Glenn Kosirog, Kosirog Pharmacy
