New 340B Services Caucus Focuses on Patients
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 as follows:

"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, children’s hospitals, and other safety net providers.”
