Be a Leader in Patient-Care Services.

The CPPA Community Pharmacy Practice Accreditation, administered by NABP, signifies to patients and payers that your pharmacy is recognized for an advanced and consistent level of value-added patient care services.

Apply for the Community Pharmacy Accreditation as a stand-alone program or create a package of NABP accreditations for a reduced price and streamlined inspection process. When combined with DMEPOS, it is possible to satisfy CMS requirements for Medicare Part B billing, while also highlighting your pharmacy’s clinical programs and services.


  • Shows patients and payers that your pharmacy offers advanced patient care.
  • Demonstrates the success of your outcome-based patient care programs.
  • Fosters a collaborative, professional environment for your pharmacy staff.
  • Encourages a working relationship with prescribers.
  • Allows you to easily pursue multiple NABP accreditation or inspection programs.


Community Pharmacy Accreditation standards focus on three performance areas: (1) practice management, (2) patient care services, and (3) quality improvement.

Patient care services includes provision of medication therapy management (both comprehensive medication review and targeted medication review), plus two of the following additional services:

  • Immunization Programs
  • Health and Wellness Screenings
  • Health and Wellness Programs
  • Care Transition Programs
  • Chronic Disease Education Programs
  • Chronic Disease Management Programs (patient specific)
  • Adherence Programs (patient specific, more than refill reminders and autofill)

Practices that demonstrate compliance and high-quality patient care can earn this voluntary accreditation and better position their business to patients.

* About CPPA

The Center for Pharmacy Practice Accreditation (CPPA) is a nonprofit organization established by NABP, the American Pharmacists Association (APhA), and American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP). These three organizations saw a need to establish standards to meet the public’s desire for specific, predictable, and measurable pharmacist clinical services. The Community Pharmacy Accreditation, originally established for CPPA, is administered by NABP for retail/community pharmacies.
