Community Voices 340B > Michigan Opinion Leader Webinar

As a peer-recognized leader in Michigan, we invite you to participate in the Community Voices for 340B Michigan Opinion Leader Webinar.

Webinar Description

The Community Voices for 340B Opinion Leader Forum will help consumers, faith-based organization, civic and business leaders understand the importance of the 340B drug discount program.  The webinar will feature representatives from hospitals, clinics, and others who will share ways that the 340B program provides better access to quality care in communities located in Michigan.  These health care providers form a vital “safety net” to care for our country’s most disadvantaged people. During COVID19 the 340B program has been integral to helping the safety net continue their important work. The webinar, sponsored by Henry Ford Health System, is aimed toward engaging community leaders as a force to preserve and protect this important program.  Now, more than ever, we are asking communities to ensure that the safety net is there for those who need it.

What is the 340B program?

First established in 1992 through bipartisan legislation, the federal 340B drug discount program offers a lifeline to the neediest and most underserved patients in this nation. The program operates on the simple principle of requiring pharmaceutical companies to provide drugs at a discounted price to certain types of safety net hospitals and clinics that, in turn, use their 340B savings to underwrite the cost of serving patients in their communities. In fact, that reinvestment in patients and communities is what has made the 340B program so successful. 340B providers can do more with their limited dollars to benefit the communities that they serve.

Over the past 25 years, the 340B program has consistently helped safety net providers meet the unique public health needs of their communities, and Congress has acted several times to extend program eligibility to additional categories hospitals. However, despite affecting just two percent of all drug sales in the United States, the program remains deeply unpopular within sectors of the pharmaceutical industry.

Who We Are
