340B Hospitals More Likely to Make Medicine More Accessible, Study Finds

340B hospitals provide “a significantly higher average number” of medication access (MA) services—such as free or discounted drugs or free delivery—than comparably sized non-340B hospitals, a new academic study shows.

The study was conducted by the University of Illinois Chicago (UIC) with funding from Community Voices for 340B (CV-340B), a nonprofit group that works to increase awareness about and support for the 340B program. It was published online on March 20 by the journal Research in Social and Administrative Pharmacy.
