340B Drug Pricing Program Background

pills(1)_edited.png

The 340B Program provides discounts on outpatient drugs to certain safety net health providers such as Federally Qualified Healthcare Centers (FQHCs). The program's intent is to allow safety net providers to increase patient services with the savings realized from participation in the 340B program. Providers typically save 25-50% on outpatient drug costs through participation in the program. These savings can be used to reduce the price of pharmaceuticals for patients, expand services offered to patients, or provide services to more patients. Outpatient prescription drugs, over the counter drugs (accompanied by a prescription), and clinic-administered drugs within eligible facilities are covered. Vaccines and inpatient drugs are not covered .
