340B Drug Pricing Program – How to Get It and Make the Most of It

The 340B Drug Pricing Program was established by Section 340B of U.S. Public Law 102-585, the Veterans Health Care Act of 1992. Its purpose is to limit the cost of covered drugs to certain federal and qualified entities. Further, 340B is intended to “enable covered entities to stretch scarce Federal resources as far as possible, reaching more eligible patients and providing more comprehensive services.” This session describes how to utilize the 340B program to further a cancer center’s clinical and programmatic objectives and explores partnership models for 340B participation.
