Health care providers in Mississippi can enroll in 340B immediately under program flexibilities granted in response to March 24 tornadoes that killed 21.

HRSA Allows Immediate 340B Enrollment in Mississippi Due to Tornadoes

Health care providers in Mississippi eligible to participate in the 340B program may do so immediately, rather than having to wait for the next normal quarterly registration period July 1-15, federal health officials said yesterday.

Strong tornadoes struck the state on March 24, killing 16 in Rolling Fork, Miss., and five others nearby. U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra declared a public health emergency there on March 27. The Health Resources and Services Administration has a longstanding policy of letting eligible entities in disaster areas enroll in 340B immediately. The notice about enrollment flexibility in Mississippi is on the HRSA Office of Pharmacy Affairs homepage.

Nationally, HRSA has been letting entities enroll in 340B immediately on a case by case basis during the COVID-19 public health emergency. That emergency is due to end on May 11. HRSA hasn’t said what will happen to its COVID-19 related 340B program flexibilities after that date.
