Headquartered in Memphis, Tennessee, Accredo Health Group, Inc., provides specialty pharmacy and related services for patients with certain complex and chronic conditions through our unique Therapeutic Resource Centers.
Accredo’s Therapeutic Resource Centers are segmented by therapy and provide targeted therapy management programs for the following therapeutic areas:
Our services cover the range of needs posed by specialty pharmacy care. Our pharmacists and other healthcare professionals talk frequently with patients over the phone, helping them follow their treatment and educating them about their condition. And our reimbursement specialists provide benefits research services, with an explanation to the patient or patient’s caregiver of any financial responsibility he/she may have plus prior authorization determination.
Accredo has adopted the Code of Ethics for Pharmacists created in 1994 by the American Pharmacists Association (APhA), which specifies ethics for all employed pharmacists. Accredo has also accepted the Principles of Practice for Pharmaceutical Care as adopted by the APhA Board of Trustees in 1995. These ethics and principles act as a framework for the ongoing evolution of our pharmacy practice.

I have been working at Accredo Health full-time (Less than a year)
Excellent work environment, flexibility as far as scheduling time-off, no points for tardiness or abscenses,; laid back atmosphere relative to its parent company, Express Scripts. Very pleasant work environment: not harried.
Pay is set by its parent company: Express Scripts. It is not much. Similar to what other pharmacies pay, yet we work in a specialty pharmacy which brings in a lot of money.
Advice to Management
Ask the rank and file when it comes to process improvement. long-term employees complain about not ever being solicited for suggestions; or if suggestions are given, they are ignored.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Accredo Health (Saint Louis, MO) in November 2015.
Took about 40 minutes. Was a phone interview with two pharmacist supervisors in ohio. They were very informative and helpful. Still waiting to hear back but they asked about behavioral and situational questions mostly and were very opened for any questions regarding the company.
