What is 340B? The 340B Drug Pricing Program (340B Program) is a federal program that requires drug manufacturers, who participate in the Medicaid Drug Rebate program, to also provide reduced 340B prices on covered outpatient drugs for 340B-covered entities. The purpose of the program is to give covered entities the ability to stretch scarce federal resources as far as possible to reach more eligible patients and provide more comprehensive services. Participation in the 340B program can result in cost saving and revenue generation for health centers. Covered entities receive front-end discounts rather than a rebate later on in the payment process. For more information about the 340B program and eligibility, click here.
