The 340B Drug Pricing Program resulted from the enactment of public law 102-585, The Veteran's HealthCare Act, which is codified as Section 340B of the Public Health Services Act. The PHS Act requires pharmaceutical manufacturers to provide a statutorily defined discount on outpatient drugs to qualified entities, thereby allowing community health centers, among others, to buy drugs for their patients at a reduced rate.
Participating covered entities report savings that range between 25–50% of Average Wholesale Price (AWP) for covered outpatient drugs as a result of 340B discounts. Currently 92% of health center sites are enrolled in Prime Vendor Programs (PVP). The complexity of enrollment and implementation is limiting Health Centers from maximizing the full potential of these programs.
With Henry Schein's 340B Plus, accessing discounted drug pricing for your Health Center has never been easier. Henry Schein has the experience and expertise to help you maximize the value from the 340B and Prime Vendor Program. The benefits for Health Centers are clear: 340B Program savings will fund more services and expand access to care to new patients.

The 340B law requires the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) to create a "prime vendor" program for the entities in the 340B drug discount program. The prime vendor handles price negotiation and drug distribution responsibilities for those entities that choose to join the prime vendor. A covered entity does not have to join the prime vendor program in order to participate in the 340B program, although covered entities are encouraged to join Apexus. The Prime Vendor negotiates favorable prices and utilize a national distribution system that would not be possible for covered entities to access individually.
