340B Drug Discount Program

The 340B Drug Pricing Program is a federal program requiring drug manufacturers that participate in the Medicaid drug rebate program to provide covered outpatient drugs to enrolled “covered entities” at or below the statutorily defined ceiling price. This requirement is described in Section 340B of the Public Health Service Act and codified at 42 USC §256b. The 340B Program’s purpose is to permit covered entities “to stretch scarce Federal resources as far as possible, reaching more eligible patients and providing more comprehensive services.” H.R. Rep. No. 102-384(II), at 12 (1992).

DSHS Central Pharmacy participates in the 340B program to purchase medication for DSHS regional clinics and partner entities serving as the public health entities for Texans.
