The next period for 340B registration of new covered entities, outpatient facilities, and contract pharmacies will begin tomorrow, April 1, and end on Friday, April 15.
Eligible hospitals, health centers, clinics, and their child sites and contract pharmacies registered during the period can begin participating in the 340B program on July 1.
This quarter’s registration period overlaps with the relatively short period during which hospitals that lost their 340B eligibility due to the COVID-19 public health emergency must file paperwork for reinstatement. That deadline is April 14.
Also, since the COVID-19 pandemic’s early days, the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) has been letting some entities, upon request and review, enroll immediately in 340B. Every Friday, HRSA publishes a supplemental Medicaid exclusion file listing entities approved for immediate enrollment. The link to it, updated weekly, is on the HRSA Office of Pharmacy Affairs COVID-19 Resources webpage.
