Eligibility in the 340B Drug Pricing program is reviewed annually by the Office of Pharmacy Affairs (OPA) and Covered Entities are required to recertify as a part of this process.
Hospitals and safety net providers are currently up for recertification, and they must complete the process by September 10. OPA recently sent email notifications about the recertification process to the Primary Contact and Authorizing Official for each Covered Entity. To participate in 340B, look for the email and begin the recertification process. If providers require more assistance with the recertification process, please go to the OPA web page on recertification, which includes some key information about the process and a step-by-step guide to recertification.
