The Health Resources and Services Administration has announced that 340B Drug Pricing Program hospitals in areas affected by recent natural disasters can immediately enroll in the program instead of waiting for the normal registration period. “HRSA recognizes that circumstances surrounding disaster relief efforts warrant flexibility for entities eligible for participation in the 340B Program,” the agency said. “Therefore, HRSA is allowing eligible entities in Texas, Louisiana, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands to immediately enroll for the 340B Program during the Public Health Emergency Declaration by the Secretary, rather than having to wait for the normal quarterly registration period.” Providers who want to enroll, can contact the 340B Prime Vendor Program at apexusanswers@340bpvp.com or (888) 340-2787.
