Good Stewardship of the 340B Drug Pricing Program
Benefits of the 340B Program
Savings realized through participation in the 340B Drug Pricing Program supports Memorial Medical Center’s ability to provide services to under-and uninsured patients, regardless of their ability to pay, and to address health care needs in our communities. In addition to providing free and discounted prescription drugs to low-income patients, Memorial Medical Center also provides a variety of services to help care for the most vulnerable in the communities we serve. Among these services are:
- Expanding access to specialized services
- Operating a 10 bed Behavioral Health Unit and Outpatient Behavioral Health Services
- Subsidizing chemotherapy and immunotherapy for uninsured patients at our on-site infusion center
Impact of Scaling Back the 340B Program
Scaling back the 340B program would threaten Memorial Medical Center’s capacity to offer the services described above to our patients.
