The 340B Program and Its Intersection with The Drug Price Relief Act
September 22, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am
The intent of this presentation is to share background on how the 340B program is an important component in supporting the delivery of care for Ohio’s safety net providers. In addition, we will explore how participants in the program and the patients they serve will be negatively impacted if Issue 2: The Drug Price Relief Act passes in November.
