ABOUT 340B AND PVP
The 340B Prime Vendor Program, defined by a contract awarded by HRSA, is responsible for supporting the 340B Drug Pricing Program. The Prime Vendor negotiates pricing discounts with participating manufacturers, provides education and resources such as 340B University and 340B University OnDemand™, and offers technical assistance through Apexus Answers.
The PVP is a voluntary program for covered entities and manufacturers alike. There is no fee for eligible covered entities to enroll and participate in the program.
Our employees, including the C-suite, use Prime Vendor educational videos and resources to learn about 340B compliance and reinforce that 340B is not just a pharmacy program. The Prime Vendor’s sub-340B pricing contracts along with added value offerings provide additional savings for our organization which allow us to expand outreach to patients regardless of their ability to pay.
