340b Pharmacy Discount Program
Passed by Congress in 1992, the 340B drug pricing program requires that pharmaceutical companies sell outpatient drugs to health care organizations at discounted rates.
Discounts are only offered to health care providers that serve a large number of uninsured and low-income patients — usually in rural communities — and offer vital services to cancer patients and children. The discounts can be as much as 50 percent of a medication’s cost and are negotiated with the drug companies.
Those savings allow facilities that qualify to continue caring for vulnerable populations in some of the most underserved areas of the country. 340B hospitals and clinics also use their savings to invest in comprehensive services, such as trauma care, labor and delivery, and immunizations, as well as treatment for HIV/AIDS and other chronic conditions.
To save money using our 340B Pharmacy discount select one of our Healthy Connections contract pharmacies:
