    Name: 340B Coalition Summer Conference
    Date: July 10, 2017 - July 12, 2017
    Event Description:

    Overview

    Celebrating 25 years of the 340B Program

    As President Trump reaches the halfway point of his first year, 1,500 340B stakeholders will gather in Washington, DC at the annual 340B Coalition Summer Conference to celebrate 25 years of program success -  enabling providers to stretch scarce resources, reaching more eligible patients and providing more comprehensive services through the 340B Drug Discount Program.

    In addition to our usual educational sessions focused on recent trends in audit findings, new compliance challenges/solutions, and new federal and state Medicaid policies and their impact on 340B stakeholders, the conference will  provide the latest legislative news from inside the Beltway at the conference.

    Little is certain in Washington these days when it comes to healthcare policy. Congress continues to discuss ways to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, and several other health bills will be moving through Congress soon. Questions about the 340B program continue to be raised.

    Among the hot topics slated for discussion at the conference:

    • What’s next for the ACA? Will efforts to repeal and replace the ACA or make fixes to the law affect the 340B program? What should providers be planning for?  And will the insurance coverage gains disappear?
    • A key pricing enforcement rule is on hold. What is the status of HRSA’s 340B ceiling price and manufacturer civil monetary penalty rule?
    • What happens next with the mega-guidance? The President put a hold on HRSA’s proposal, but will it be revived?
    • 340B legislation. Will the pharmaceutical industry get their wish and get a bill through Congress to restrict the 340B program?
    • Anger about high drug prices. President Trump has promised to rein in drug prices. Can it actually be done?

    Whether you are a health care provider, contract pharmacy, pharmaceutical manufacturer, 340B-oriented business or government agency, attending the conference is the best way to be informed about 340B.

    We look forward to seeing you in July!
