Illinois Attorney for LegitScript Certification

In today's world, businesses of all types often need to maintain an online presence. By doing so, they can connect with customers in a wide variety of locations and provide them with products and services. However, healthcare businesses such as pharmacies and telemedicine providers will need to meet certain requirements when providing these types of services. Because there has been so much illicit activity online, including scams, identity theft, fraud, and drug trafficking, legitimate businesses will need to obtain certification in order to demonstrate that they are trustworthy.

Pharmacies that distribute drugs and medical products to online customers will need to demonstrate that they have complied with all applicable laws and regulations. The process of obtaining certification can be complex, costly, and time-consuming, but with legal help from a skilled attorney, pharmacies can make sure they are following the correct procedures. At The Law Offices of Joseph J. Bogdan, Inc., we have extensive knowledge of the licensing requirements that apply to pharmacies and pharmacists, and we can provide guidance to ensure that the online accreditation process can be completed as quickly and efficiently as possible. We work with clients throughout the United States to address these concerns and obtain certification.

LegitScript Certification

LegitScript is the leading provider of certifications for pharmacies that provide products or services to online customers. This certification provides legitimacy for a brand while building credibility and trust among patients and customers. A pharmacy that is certified by LegitScript will be authorized to advertise on platforms such as Google, Facebook, Bing, and TikTok, and it will also be able to accept payments through credit card companies such as Visa and Mastercard and payment processors such as Square.

LegitScript also provides a number of other services, including merchant monitoring, platform monitoring, and brand monitoring to ensure that pharmacies can address any compliance issues promptly. Certified pharmacies are discoverable in LegitScript's database, and they will be able to display the LegitScript Seal of Approval on their website, which can help them stand out from the competition and demonstrate that they can be trusted by patients.

● Licensure - A pharmacy must be properly licensed in all required jurisdictions.

● Legal compliance - A pharmacy must maintain compliance with all applicable state and federal laws and regulations that are related to prescribing and dispensing medications, drug safety, and supply-chain concerns.

● Domain name registration - Pharmacies that operate websites must ensure that all registration for domain names contains public information for a registrant that is directly related to the applicant's business.

● Disciplinary issues - A pharmacy, pharmacist, or medical practitioner must not have been subject to any recent significant disciplinary actions.
