banner background
Safety net providers play a crucial role in providing affordable healthcare services to underserved populations. The 340B Drug Pricing Program is a valuable program that enables hospitals to stretch scarce resources and improve patient access to medications. However, the program is currently facing numerous challenges, including regulation changes, restrictions imposed by manufacturers, and complex compliance requirements. Navigating these challenges can be daunting for participating organizations.

Our in-depth, four-hour boot camp is designed to help equip hospitals with the knowledge and tools needed to navigate the 340B Program. We’ll provide a detailed overview of the program, explain the pillars of compliance, and offer insights on Medicaid billing and HRSA audit preparation. Participants also will learn about internal oversight and controls, profitability tracking, 340B savings tools, contract pharmacy networks, and strategic approaches to helping leverage program benefits. In addition, we’ll explore advocacy efforts and provide an outlook on the future of the 340B Program.

A solid understanding of the 340B Program can help hospitals comply with program requirements, improve savings, and provide essential healthcare services to their communities.
