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 Knox Community Health Center participates in the 340B drug program with Walgreens locations in Galesburg.
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.
The National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC) found that health centers save between 15-60% on their prescription drug costs by using the 340B program, depending on the volume and type of drugs purchased.
Pharmacy Assistance Program (PAP) services are available to Knox Community Health Center patients. Certain prescription drugs are available through pharmaceutical programs for a small administrative fee.Contact Staci Simpson to see if you qualify.
