Reinforcing the Safety Net: Ensuring the future of 340B
FCAA and Grantmakers In Health invite you to this collaborative webinar that will focus on the critical role 340B plays in financing health services in the U.S. The goal of this discussion will be to highlight both the purpose and vulnerability of the program, the advocacy needed to protect its future, and the important role funders can play in this moment.
For almost 30 years, the 340B Drug Pricing Program has allowed health care organizations – including small rural hospitals and community health centers – that serve low-income and at-risk populations to access discounts on medications they provide, and to use the savings to invest in expanded programs and services for patients. 340B continues to be at the center of drug pricing reform conversations, and at risk of changes within state Medicaid programs, efforts that may significantly limit or end the benefits received by health care organizations – resources that are crucial to sustaining health systems, particularly in the U.S. South and other states that have not expanded Medicaid.
Attendance is limited to representatives of funding or philanthropy-serving organizations. If you have questions, please contact Sarah Hamilton at [email protected].
