340 B Pharmacies in Mississippi

340B Pharmacy Program

The 340B Drug Pricing Program (340B program) was created in 1992 to provide discounts on outpatient prescription drugs to select safety net providers, including among others, Federally Qualified Health Centers, which include centers receiving grant funds under Section 330 of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act and look-a-like health centers.  The program promotes: 1) access to affordable medications, 2) efficient business practices, 3) outcomes-driven pharmacy services, and 4) quality assurance.  The intent of the program is to permit covered entities “to stretch scarce Federal resources as far as possible, reaching more eligible patients and providing more comprehensive services.”

Find out if your hospital or clinic has a 340B Pharmacy or contracts with one.

Always ask. Sometimes a pharmacy may actually BE 340B and the techs working there may not know it.  It's happened.
