On April 16, 2014, Draffin & Tucker partner Cindy DuPree presented a 60-minute webinar to Georgia HFMA focusing on the 340B Drug Pricing Program. The presentation shared lessons learned at the January 2014 340B University and February 2014 340B Coalition meetings. The presentation also included discussion of the following topics:
- External audits of 340B program
- HRSA audits lessons learned and corrective actions
- Orphan drugs
- Medicaid billing
- Policies and procedures
- Contract pharmacies, including compliance elements and OIG report findings
- What’s coming with 340B in 2014
DuPree told webinar participants to watch out for the “Mega Reg” (regulations) targeted for release this year and said that many of the issues identified by HRSA audits and the OIG will likely result in more proposed regulations. Regardless, 2014 will be a big year for 340B.
