What is 340B?
The 340B Drug Pricing Program is an essential source of support for safety net healthcare providers, non-profit clinics, and hospitals. The 340B program allows them to stretch increasingly scarce resources and cover the costs of patient care. The program allows providers to purchase drugs at significantly reduced costs. The providers pass the savings on to their patients through reduced drug prices and use additional savings to expand access and improve healthcare. Safety net providers include people living with HIV, the poor, and people who have lost their health insurance. The cost of healthcare can easily push them further into poverty, disease, even death. The 340B program helps prevent this.

340B discounts totaled $6 billion in 2015, that’s 1.3 percent of total US drug sales in that year. That’s it.
The COST to taxpayers: Zero. The 340B Program simply allows eligible health care providers that serve a large number of low-income patients to purchase medications at a special discount from drug makers. That savings can, in turn, be used by these eligible providers to fund services and care for their patients, and at no cost to taxpayers.
Since 1992, the 340B Program has allowed safety net providers serving low income communities to use prescription drug savings obtained directly from drug manufacturers to fund more services to more patients.
