340B and You:
Operational Challenges in 2018


And you thought the smoke was bad
from the forest fires…

appeal academy | medical auditSo this is a still picture of the 340B Train… see the label?  Neat, huh?
BUT… the question you need to answer is… is the train:

(a) Stopped,
(b) Slowly moving forward, or
(c) About to Run You Down.

                              Be sure to choose your answer wisely…

THIS WEEK, we take a look at one of the major changes recently published by CMS in the CY2018 OPPS Final Rule: the changes to the 340B Drug Program. More specifically, the reimbursement model for it.

Mary-Ellen England, 340B Consultant

Lisa Tonkinson, 340B Consultant

Join us from e4 Services is Lisa Tonkinson, and Mary-Ellen England, both veteran consultants for 340B hospital operations. Bill Malm invited them to come on show and share their extensive knowledge and expertise, and we are happy to have them join us to discuss this troublesome program and recommendations for dealing with the changes, from a practical, operational point of view.

We know that the AHA and the AMA are teaming up to challenge the new program in court, but meanwhile… the January 1 implementation deadline fast approaches.

The question, then, is how will you implement these changes while waiting to see what happens in the courts?

SO… THIS week, our Panel will be discussing :

  • HOW does 340B really affect your hospital? (aka – what the heck is it?)
  • WHAT are the changes made to 340B in the CY 2018 OPPS Final Rule?
  • WHAT are the implications of those changes for hospitals?
  • WHAT kind of pitfalls await your operations as a result of the changes?
  • WHAT kind of solutions should you be considering?
  • HOW will you implement those solutions?

So join us, share your own insights and bring your questions for us!
