By: Brandon M. Macsata, CEO, ADAP Advocacy Association
On January 28, 2016, something peculiar happened in the debate over the future
of the 340B Drug Pricing Program. The ADAP Advocacy Association launched
its new 340B Service Caucus, thus giving patients living with HIV/AIDS a
seat at the table.
The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) summarizes the program
"The 340B Drug Pricing Program requires drug manufacturers to provide outpatient
drugs to eligible health care organizations/covered entities at significantly
reduced prices. The 340B Program enables covered entities to stretch scarce
Federal resources as far as possible, reaching more eligible patients and
providing more comprehensive services. Eligible health care organizations/covered
entities are defined in statute and include HRSA-supported health centers
and look-alikes, Ryan White clinics and State AIDS Drug Assistance programs,
Medicare/Medicaid Disproportionate Share Hospitals, childrens hospitals,
and other safety net providers.
