Powers Principal Bill von Oehsen will speak during a 340B Health webinar to discuss HRSA’s new rule on 340B ceiling price calculations and manufacturer civil monetary penalties for manufacturers that intentionally overcharge covered entities for 340B covered outpatient drugs.

The 75-minute webinar will focus on HRSA’s new policies on drugs when they first come to market, including new 340B pricing rules and mandatory offers of overcharge refunds, as well as the rule’s practical implications for 340B hospitals.

Additionally, the panel will discuss how hospitals should investigate and pursue overcharge concerns, how hospitals can monitor for potential overcharges and how the federal government will apply manufacturer CMPs.

Bill will be joined by Greg Doggett, legal and policy counsel for 340B Health, and Steve Miller, Pharmacy Services Director for 340B Health. In addition to the panel, the webinar will also include a 15-minute question and answer session.

Bill has more than 20 years of experience on pharmaceutical pricing and reimbursement matters, including the 340B drug discount program, the Medicaid drug rebate program, Medicare Part D, Robinson-Patman, and state Medicaid and pharmacy laws.

He helped establish and serves as outside counsel to 340B Health, formerly Safety Net Hospitals for Pharmaceutical Access, an advocacy organization of more than 1,200 public and private nonprofit hospitals participating in the 340B program. He played a key role in helping to enact the 340B program in 1992, as well as to expand the law in 2010 under the Affordable Care Act.

This webinar will be held at 1 p.m. Monday, March 27. It is being offered exclusively for 340B Health members, corporate partners, and prospective member hospitals. It is recommended for legal counsel, pharmacy directors, 340B managers, government relations specialists, and others involved in the 340B program.
