Pharmaceutical Compliance Monitor 12/14/15 By Alyce C. Katayama and Elizabeth R. Gebarski
Below is an excerpt:
This is Part Two in a two-part series exploring the proposed 340B Drug Pricing Program Omnibus Guidance (Guidance). This article delves into the Guidance’s impact on manufacturers and in Figure 1, summarizes wins and losses for various stakeholders.
Manufacturers have one statutory obligation under the 340B Program: to provide covered outpatient drugs to participating covered entities (CEs) at no greater than the 340B-ceiling price (i.e., the maximum price manufacturers can charge for a 340B-purchased drug). Just how a manufacturer ensures and the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) monitors compliance under the Guidance is the focus of this article.
