Wednesday, March 22

The program allows 340B hospitals and covered entities to stretch limited federal resources to improve access to outpatient medications, provide free care for uninsured patients, implement medication management, and expand health services to the patients and communities they serve. Pharmacy services are critical to ensuring access to necessary medications and practice and compliance models for successful comprehensive preservation and utilization of the benefits of 340B.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify opportunities to expand health system and pharmacy services to improve access to underserved populations.
