340B Drug Pricing Program

340B Drug Pricing Program

Marshall Medical Center participates in the 340B drug pricing program, which allows organizations like Marshall Hospital to save money on certain drugs. These savings are then used to help fund community services such as our Community Care Network, providing a multidisciplinary approach to care for our community’s most medically frail and vulnerable patients at no cost to the enrolled patients. We also use the savings to upgrade or acquire needed medical technology, provide meaningful charity care as described in our charity care policy, re-invest in our facilities, and provide community health education and outreach.

We are proud to be good stewards of this federal program. Here are links to our Commitment Statement and current statistics.

About the 340B program: This federal program requires drug manufacturers to sell outpatient drugs at a discount to hospitals and clinics in communities with high numbers of low-income Medicare, Medicaid and Supplemental Security Insurance patients. Congress created the program over 25 years ago in a bipartisan act to allow these providers to “stretch scarce federal resources as far as possible, reaching more eligible patients and providing more comprehensive services.” This program does not incur costs to taxpayers.
