Think all pharmacies are the same? Think again. Howard Brown Health’s pharmacy network can help you save on your prescriptions and assist people who are uninsured at the same time. The 340B Program provides discounts on most prescriptions – no membership required. See if your pharmacy is in the 340B Program today. You might already be saving and not even know it. It’s one more reason to refill.
Learn About How 340B Works
The federal 340B program was designed to allow safety net providers “to stretch scarce federal resources as far as possible” – all at no cost to patients or taxpayers. It requires pharmaceutical manufacturers who participate in the Medicaid Drug Rebate Program to provide discounted pricing to FQHCs and other 340B covered entities. This allows FQHCs to pass along these discounts directly to uninsured patients to help them afford their medications. Medications that are dispensed to insured patients can generate savings or revenue—at no cost to the patient—that health centers use to help afford free or discounted medical care and other essential services. Virtually every FQHC, Ryan White CARE Act HIV medical provider, and STI clinic in the country relies at least in part on 340B program savings in order to provide sliding scale and free care to patients with financial barriers.
