Negotiating 340B Agreements: contract pharmacies, third party administrators, and other vendors. OH MY!
340B covered entities often rely on contract pharmacies and 340B administrators (sometimes called third-party administrators, or “TPAs”) to carry out their 340B program operations. These relationships can be efficient and rewarding when properly understood, monitored, and structured, but missteps can be disastrous. The majority of 340B program audit findings issued by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) and its Office of Pharmacy Affairs (OPA) for diversion and duplicate discounts involve contract pharmacies. Skip the stress! Join the FTLF 340B/Pharmacy team on this webinar to learn best practices for getting the most out of your contracts, identify key contract terms, ensure that payers and Medicaid are billed correctly, and review and improve existing policies and procedures to reduce 340B audit risks.
