The 340B drug pricing program is a great way for covered entities to provide affordable medications to individuals that have healthcare needs greater than their capacity to spend. 
Without the correct software and compliance engine, 340B programs can be susceptible to inaccuracy, wasted manpower, penalties, and risk of non-compliance from HRSA (Health Resources and Services Administration) and the Office of Pharmacy Affairs (OPA).

340Basics Software: Designed by administrators to assure complete compliance

Our software is not only accurate; it’s incredibly quick, efficient, and dedicated solely to 340B processing. It is also user friendly and was developed with the oversight of an actual covered entity administrator. This focus led to the design of a streamlined software package with improved processing capabilities assuring full compliance, along with the creation of the required auditable records.

As most of us know, the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) is an agency of the U.S Department of Health and Human Services and is the organization that oversees the 340B Program. HRSA states that Internal Audits are required as part of overseeing your contract pharmacy. But we strongly feel that performing audits, whether self-auditing or hiring an outside consulting company to perform a mock HRSA audit, is good judgement and best practice.

Questions to ask yourself: 

  • Covered Entities are responsible for all actions of contract pharmacies related to the 340B Program, when performing self-audits, are you simply reviewing your TPA records or are you executing complete audits on all the fundamentals?

If you were notified today by HRSA that your entity would be subject to an audit based on the federally mandated guidelines in just 2 weeks, would you be confident of passing their compliance standards?

Have you taken the time to thoroughly review and/or update your Policy and Procedures, record keeping practices, OPA Database entry and possess meticulous data reporting?

With responding to these three simple questions you can assess your readiness for a 340B HRSA audit. Your answers could determine if there are findings during a HRSA audit that may result in repayment obligations and a corrective action plan. It is your responsibility to ensure the integrity of the program and maintain compliance.

Things to take into consideration when reviewing and conducting an internal audit?
We suggest conducting monthly audits on your contract and in-house pharmacies.
Ensure that your claims are for eligible patients, by eligible providers and at eligible locations.
Conduct sampling audits – at a minimum 5 claims per contract pharmacy/per month.
Ensure that you fully understand your States procedures for Medicaid Carve-In/Carve-Out to prevent Duplicate Discounts.
Institute a 340B Oversight or Compliance Committee with written procedures on responsible personnel.
All information on the OPA Database is accurate and up-to-date.
Save all your self-audit reports, findings, and communication of findings to your Oversight/Compliance Committee, HRSA will ask to see this.
In conjunction with conducting your internal self-audits, it is recommended to employ a reputable consultant or firm to hold an annual independent mock HRSA Audit.

What to expect during an HRSA Mock Audit

The objective of a mock audit is to assess the organizations preparedness for a HRSA audit. This is achieved by conducting an in-depth evaluation of all crucial 340B Program compliance and management elements, once the mock audit is complete, you should then be provided with strategies for remediation if necessary.
