NACHC has just completed two papers on the Section 340B drug discount program that will be of value to PCAs and health centers. The first document is called Understanding the 340B Program: A Primer for Health Centers. It contains a great deal of current information on the operation of, and issues concerning, the 340B program—particularly those relevant to health centers. The second paper is titled NACHC Study on the Benefits of the 340B Drug Pricing Program for Health Centers. It describes a study that NACHC conducted several months ago to gauge the use and value of the 340B program for health centers. The study reflects that the 340B program has been of great value to participating health centers and suggests that those who are not currently using the 340B program should consider doing so. We hope that both of these new resources are helpful to you.
