HRSA Grants 340B Enrollment Flexibility in Kentucky Due to Floods

The U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) is letting eligible healthcare providers in flood-devastated Kentucky enroll in the 340B program immediately instead of making them wait until the next quarterly enrollment period in October.

U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra on Aug. 2 declared a public health emergency in Kentucky due to severe flooding, landslides, and mudslides in the eastern part of the state. Nearly 40 people in five counties are confirmed dead and two are missing. President Biden and first lady Jill Biden visited eastern Kentucky on Monday.

HRSA posted the 340B enrollment flexibility notice on the Office of Pharmacy Affairs homepage early this week. Enrollment flexibilities in New Mexico announced in May remain in place.
