340B – Understanding the Basics

Overview
As a board member, your responsibility is to assess the environment and look for both opportunities and threats that may impact the hospital's financial success. Have you assessed 340B lately? For many eligible hospitals, 340B is an answer to a long-standing problem of funding critical patient services that may be underfunded or poorly reimbursed. For others, 340B is seen as problematic and needs reform. Understanding the basics to the complex is key to hospitals successfully participating in the 340B program. Executives and their board members play a critical role in shaping the advocacy message, intent, and utilization of their organization’s 340B benefit. Learn how your role as a healthcare leader can help shape 340B into a sustainable benefit as industry dynamics shift.
