Final HRSA Registration Period of 2022: 5 Tips for Getting Started With 340B
FINAL DAY FOR 2022 HRSA REGISTRATION
October 1-15 is the last HRSA registration period for 2022! There are a few reasons you or your client could be looking to register:
- You’re interested in participating in the 340B program.
- You’ve already registered and have opportunities to add new outpatient facilities or contract pharmacy relationships.
- Your plan members that meet the patient definition filling at a pharmacy are not currently contracted with your covered entity for 340B.
Knowing where to start can be difficult, but we are here to help! Here are a few items from the U.S. Dept. of Health & Human Services to cross off your list before registering for the 340B Program:
Check if your site is already registered
Search 340B OPAIS for registered sites. This will prevent you from registering duplicates or identify terminated registrations you may want back in the 340B Program. If you aren’t sure your sites are already registered, contact the 340B Prime Vendor Program (PVP) for assistance.
Identify your Authorizing Official and Primary Contact
The AO must be an individual who can bind the organization to a contract, such as a CEO, COO, CFO, clinic administrator, or program manager. The PC should be an employee of the organization. They may not be the same as the AO and cannot be a consultant or contractor.
Set up your account.
To register, you must have a 340B Office of Pharmacy Affairs (340B OPAIS) user account. Visit the 340B OPAIS site and select “help” in the upper right-hand corner of the page. To ensure the Authorizing Official (AO) and Primary Contact (PC) receive 340B OPAIS email notifications, add firstname.lastname@example.org to your email program’s spam filter.
Contact your grant Program Director or Program Manager.
Contact the state grantee and let them know you are applying to the 340B Drug Pricing Program. They will receive an email from HRSA asking them to verify the receipt of grant funds.
To verify eligibility, HHS will send an email to the appropriate Project Director (PD) or Program Manager (PM) to confirm the entity receives eligible grant funding for all grantee types (e.g. Ryan White (RW), Family Planning (FP), Hemophilia Treatment Centers (HTC), STD/318, and TB/317) registrations.
Gather necessary information.
You will need to provide a federal grant number when registering for the 340B Program. If you plan to use 340B drugs for your Medicaid patients, you will need to provide your Medicaid billing number or National Provider Identifier.
You can also find the federal grant number at the agency that receives the grant from the Federal Grant Program.
