Section 340B In-House and Contract Pharmacies

With our specialized and in-depth experience in Pharmacy Law, Frier Levitt is uniquely positioned to represent both Section 340B in-house and contract pharmacies participating in the Federal 340B program.

The 340B Drug Discount Program, which is administered and monitored by the Office of Pharmacy Affairs under the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), requires drug manufacturers to provide outpatient drugs to eligible healthcare organizations and covered entities at significantly reduced prices.

340B healthcare organizations and covered entities may elect to provide outpatient drugs as a service of their own, commonly referred to as an in-house pharmacy. Additionally, many 340B eligible healthcare organizations and covered entities elect to dispense 340B drugs to patients through contract pharmacy services, an arrangement in which the 340B covered entity signs a contract with a pharmacy to provide pharmacy services. These pharmacies may include independent pharmacies, community retail pharmacies, chain based pharmacies, and specialty pharmacies.
