340B Drug Pricing Program
MCHC is proud to be able to offer access to its patients to the 340B drug-pricing program. This program can help our patients save substantial dollar amounts on prescription medications. 340B is a program created by the federal government that provides medications to eligible health care organizations and covered entities, like MCHC, to help patients receive medications at lower costs. The purpose of the 340B program is to “stretch scarce federal resources as far as possible, reaching more eligible patients and providing more comprehensive services.”
A few of the many 340B benefits include reduced medication costs on qualifying medications, potential lowered cost on medications for Medicare patients during the coverage gap or “doughnut hole” period, and lower cost on medications that are not covered on a patient’s insurance.
340B is available to ALL MCHC patients while under the care of a MCHC provider on qualifying medications at a 340B contracted pharmacy.
340B also serves to help expand our clinical services and helps provide MCHC with the latest and most up-to-date equipment.
340B pricing may fluctuate quarterly and some medications may no longer be available at contract pharmacies based on recent manufacturer restrictions. These manufactures include Eli Lilly, AstraZeneca, Sanofi, United Therapeutics, Merck, Bristol Myers Squibb (Immunomodulary imide drugs), and Giliad.
