• The 340B Drug Pricing Program resulted from enactment of Public Law 102-585, the Veterans Health Care Act of 1992, which is codified as Section 340B of the Public Health Service Act.

 

  • RHN is a federally qualified health center providing eligibility to participate in the Federal 340B Discount Drug program.

 

  • Section 340B limits the cost of covered outpatient drugs to organizations like RHN. Even patients who are seeing a specialist such as a cardiologist or rheumatologist may be eligible for the discounted drugs as long as a provider from RHN co-signs the prescription and is participating in the overall care of the patient.
