For CFOs, CMOs, pharmacy managers

The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) has updated its COVID-19 FAQ for 340B hospitals registering outpatient sites. The guidance now allows 340B hospitals to register outpatient sites and facilities before they appear on the hospital’s most recently filed Medicare cost report.  

340B hospitals should be sure to document their policies and procedures when they use this new flexibility to address resource needs related to COVID-19. 

The FAQs site also includes guidance on 340B hospital eligibility criteria, noting that HRSA does not have the authority to waive current law 340B eligibility criteria.
