POWERS Principal William von Oehsen and Associate Mark Ogunsusi will be presenting at the National Commission on Correctional Health Care Spring Conference on Correctional Health Care in New Orleans. Their session, “340B Drug Pricing Program: Navigating Compliance, Maximizing Savings,” will take place on May 1st at 10:15 AM.

Medication costs represent a large portion of many correctional institutions’ budgets. The 340B Drug Pricing Program provides a crucial opportunity for significant savings, but identifying the opportunities and navigating the compliance risks of the program can be difficult. This presentation will provide important background on the 340B program, describe key program opportunities for correctional health care providers, and carefully review best practices for achieving optimal program compliance.

Educational Objectives

  • Review the history and purpose of the 340B Drug Pricing Program
