Needs Statement

The 340B Drug Pricing Program requires drug manufacturers to provide outpatient drugs to eligible health care organizations/covered entities at significantly reduced prices.

The 340B Program enables covered entities to stretch scarce Federal resources as far as possible, reaching more eligible patients and providing more comprehensive services*. Understanding the importance of compliance and management is critical to maintaining the integrity of the 340b program.

Eligible health care organizations (covered entities) include HRSA-supported health centers and look-alikes, Ryan White clinics and State AIDS Drug Assistance programs, Medicare/Medicaid Disproportionate Share Hospitals, children’s hospitals, and other safety net providers.

Pharmacists and Technicians will be making decisions about purchasing these eligible products and need to be informed.
