2019 promises to be a time of change and obstacles.
Regulatory challenges have led 340B providers to ask the courts to ensure a level playing field. And, in October, the CEOs of more than 700 340B hospitals from every state in the country called on the bipartisan leaders of Congress to #Protect340B.
“Ants, fighting together, will vanquish the Lion”. – Saadi
The collective efforts of our industry to strengthen 340B will be front and center in San Diego January 30-February 1 for the 2019 340B Coalition Winter Conference.
Areas of focus will include an update on what’s new in HRSA’s 340B audits; trends in state Medicaid policies around 340B; and new developments in contract pharmacy, inventory management, and specialty pharmacy. The conference will hear from experts on the response to the national epidemic of opioid abuse and the pursuit of health equity. There will also be updates on the ever changing landscape that is Capitol Hill.
WHO should attend the conference:
Pharmacists and clinic directors at institutions providing care to low-income and uninsured populations
Pharmaceutical manufacturers, distributors, and group purchasing organizations
Pharmacy service companies and information technology firms
Retail, chain, specialty pharmacies, and other businesses that contract with 340B entities
State Medicaid pharmacy directors and drug assistance program managers
Pharmacy benefit managers/administrators, and other health plans
Consultants, attorneys, and other compliance experts
Federal, state, and local policy makers and government relations directors
AIDS drug assistance program officials and AIDS service organizations
Other providers of health care for the uninsured and vulnerable populations
