340B Contract Pharmacy Agreement

340B Contract Pharmacy Agreement

If a drug does not accumulate within a negotiated period (usually 90 days) on a full box, the CE pays the contract pharmacy (via the TPA) the higher cost of the drug that the pharmacy would pay according to the reports. This always results in a loss for the CE. Contract pharmacies should be listed with correct names and addresses in order to avoid any delays in their implementation. Contract pharmacies cannot participate in the 340B program until they have been approved by the Office of Pharmaceutical Affairs and the contract pharmacy is listed on the 340B OPAIS. Note of the 340B Drug Pricing Program – Contract Pharmacy Services (PDF – 72.6 KB) are the guidelines governing the operation and compliance of contract pharmacies for companies covered by 340B. However, at the time, opponents argued that the guidelines did not adequately describe protective measures that would address important problems such as drug diversion and double remittances. . . .
