Getting prepared for intense session on 340B
Approaching quickly on November 30 th , the MPHCA members and others will participate in a face to face all day training on the 340B Drug Pricing Program. Thoughts for preparation for the event may include:

  • Demonstrating how you use your 340B savings to benefit underserved patients
  • Contact your PCA before responding to any requests re: 340B
  • Being able to answer detailed questions about your contract pharmacy arrangements
  • Responding promptly to inquiries from ACE consulting group, a contracted 340B validation service, re: duplicate discounts
  • Using this training to validate to HRSA/OPA your investment should you be considered for an audit at any level.

As part of its ongoing discussion on and investigation into the 340B program, the U.S. House Committee on Energy and Commerce sent information requests to a sampling of covered entities participating in the program across the country, including some FQHCs. To see an example of the letter sent by the committee to an FQHC, click here .  It is wise to get as much training and education on the 340B program as possible to ensure both compliance and that your health center is making the most of the program.
