340B Considerations for Secondary Purchases

March 14, 15, or 16, 2023

Purchasing Office Hours

Purchasing Office Hours is a 340B University online event in which participants watch an educational video then attend a live meeting for open discussion. The live session allows attendees to ask questions and discuss operational challenges with peers and subject matter experts. Capacity is limited to provide maximum peer-to-peer interaction.

Individuals who have a role in purchasing 340B drugs must be knowledgeable about program compliance elements for 340B-related decision making in their day-to-day workflows. The purpose of Purchasing Office Hours is to provide an overview of key elements regarding both compliance and stewardship in 340B drugs, assign actionable follow-up items to apply at your organization, and facilitate an open Q&A session for you to engage with peers and experienced faculty on operational topics.

340B Considerations for Secondary Purchases

  • Describe what a secondary purchase is and why it requires different 340B considerations
  • Discuss how to maintain 340B compliance when making secondary purchases
  • Share best practices for loading contracts for secondary accounts
  • Identify potential compliance pitfalls and best practice solutions

Participants will learn about the workshop concepts by viewing a 20-minute video on their own before the session. A worksheet is also included in the pre-work to help participants think through their operation and bring questions to the discussion group. Participants are expected to come prepared to discuss course concepts and raise questions. Course materials are sent out about a week in advance of the event.
