The 340B Program
The 340B Drug Discount Program is a US federal program that requires drug manufacturers to provide outpatient drugs at significantly reduced prices to qualifying covered entities. This allows the covered entities to stretch scarce federal dollars, reach more eligible patients—including the under-insured and uninsured— and provide more comprehensive services to the most financially vulnerable in society. These covered entities range from hospitals and health centers to Ryan White grantees and specialized clinics.
Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) oversees the 340B program, ensuring covered entities remain compliant with the program’s various rules and regulations. They conduct regular audits looking for discrepancies relating to virtual inventory, HIPAA compliance, unmatched patient claims, accounts reconciliation, applied discounts, and more. While HRSA functions as the regulatory agency for the 340B Program, the responsibility for implementation of, patient access to and compliance with the program relies on a coordinated effort between covered entities, pharmacies, manufacturers, administrators and wholesalers.
