Taking the Chains Off 340B

November 5, 2015

In an opinion editorial, Brian Duffie (Greenwood Index-Journal, 11/5) discussed the Health Resources and Services Administration’s (HRSA’s) proposed guidance for the 340B Drug Pricing Program. Duffie found the reforms to be promising for independent pharmacies, which in 2010 made up 83% of 340B contract pharmacies but in 2015 represent only a quarter of contract pharmacies.
