New HRSA FAQ Clarifies 340B Eligibility for New Locations

For those involved in the 340B program, you know that there are some unique challenges associated with adding new locations.  Given the consolidation that’s happening in healthcare, this becomes a really challenging problem.

In many cases, healthcare organizations have to wait years to start fully seeing the benefits of 340B for new locations. The good news is that a new HRSA FAQ clarifies 340B Eligibility for new locations and it will make a big impact for healthcare organizations in this regard.

To learn more about these changes, we sat down with Lisa Scholz, PharmD, FACHE, Head of Industry Relations at Sentry Data Systems, where we discuss the clarifications HRSA provided and what healthcare organizations should know about the changes.  Scholz also shares with us the importance of “patient definition” when it comes to the clarifications and how this HRSA FAQ will affect smaller clinics and those treating indigent patients.  Finally, Scholz shares what covered entity hospitals should be doing and how they should be working with their 340B management and compliance software partner to manage these changes.

If you play a role in your organization’s 340B efforts, you’ll enjoy this interview:
