Program Overview and Objectives

Designed for member hospitals in both urban and rural areas, HAP’s 340B Day will provide guidance on how to:

  • Compliantly implement a 340B program that expands access to discount prescriptions through a network of contract pharmacies
  • Utilize the entity’s 340B purchasing power to provide discounted prescriptions to low income and uninsured patients

Participants will explore practical "best practices" in 340B program management available to various entities, including: Contract Pharmacy, Split Billing, and Audit Management.
