Powers’ Principal, William von Oehsen, joins Craig Frost, President and COO of Sectyr, for a webinar on the future of the 340B drug pricing program and how to prepare for the future in a compliant and accountable manner. The webinar is called “Strengthening 340B Program Integrity to Improve Accountability and Confidence.” As a bipartisan group of U.S. senators reviews responses to a congressional Request for Information (RFI) seeking input on how to improve the 340B program, the webinar will help give 340B program participants and vendors a greater understanding of current challenges facing the program and how to prepare for those challenges.
In this webinar, Mr. von Oehsen will describe the possible outcomes of current litigation and legislation and what outcomes are most likely. Some of the questions discussed will be:
- What is the future of the 340B contract pharmacy program?
- Will covered entities continue to receive 340B revenue from Medicaid, Medicare and private payers?
- Should covered entities expect the 340B definition of “patient” to expand, contract or stay the same?
- Will critics of the 340B program be successful in reforming the program?
