It’s been a busy month for 340B with new features on OPAIS, new Medicaid Managed Care payers, and new educational opportunities for your Covered Entity to take advantage:
- 340B Ceiling Price Feature is now live on the Office of Pharmacy Affairs Information Systems for Authorizing Officials and Primary Contacts. To access this feature, log into OPAIS and click the “Pricing” tab. You can check the ceiling prices on each eligible 340B NDC. Please be aware the prices you see on the website may be different from what you are paying your wholesaler due to a number of factors (wholesaler charges, inconsistent data loaded into OPAIS, rounding errors, etc). Please let me know if you have any questions about this feature. An overview will be sent out to PHV’s Managed Clients on how to properly utilize this information to optimize your 340B Program. If you’d like to learn more information about PHV’s Managed Services, please reach out to Andrew Cross at Andrew.Cross@phvne.com or at 402-742-2211.
- New Nebraska Managed Care Medicaid payer (RxAdvance) effective April 1, 2019. Please be sure to add Bin 020545 PCN RXA374 Group # RXGMCNE01 to your contract pharmacy Medicaid filters to prevent any duplicate discounts!
- It’s not too late to sign up for PHV’s Annual 340B Conference on June 4th in North Platte or June 5th in Lincoln! This FREE conference is for Covered Entities only as PHV will be discussing the Healthcare climate in Washington D.C, audit trends, 340B software improvements, and retail pharmacy challenges. If you’d like to sign up, please reach out to Andrew Cross at Andrew.Cross@phvne.com or 402-742-2211!
