340B Database Technical Assistance
The 340B Office of Pharmacy Affairs Information System (OPAIS) is the official list of covered entities eligible to purchase or use 340B drugs for its patients. The 340B OPAIS provides the most current information HRSA has on participating covered entities, contract pharmacy arrangements, and drug manufacturers. In addition, the 340B OPAIS signals whether covered entities bill Medicaid for 340B drugs. The 340B OPAIS gives manufacturers and wholesalers positive assurance that the purchasing/receiving site is eligible to obtain 340B drugs.
