DHCS 340B Self-Audit Overview: Webinar Participant Information

Originally recorded March 3, 2021

In July 2020, the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) announced they will send a letter to every 340B provider/covered entity demanding they conduct a self-audit of paid fee-for-service (FFS) claims data from Dec. 1, 2016 through Dec. 31, 2019. While some hospitals have already received these letters from DHCS, most have not.

That is expected to change soon — are you ready? 

Join us as experts from CHA and Hooper, Lundy, & Bookman, PC, review the requirements of the 340B Self-Audit and discuss developments to date, and help you answer questions such as:

  • How should we respond? 
  • We may have found situations where we did not bill properly; what do we do?
  • If we have to self-disclose, what are our options?
  • What are the implications for Contract Pharmacies?

This is your opportunity for up-to-date details, insights into state plans going forward, and expert 340B compliance tips. There will be plenty of time for Q&A and this is the right team to ask.

  • Introduction to 340B
  • State Actions to Date and CHA’s Advocacy
  • Key History and Issues
  • Compliance Requirements for Hospitals and Pharmacies
