SpendMend Pharmacy - 340B Compliance
340B program participation comes with complex regulatory and audit requirements that must be managed carefully to maintain compliance
SpendMend Pharmacy 340B Compliance
SpendMend Pharmacy leverages the experience and expertise of Turnkey Pharmacy Solutions to provide external 340B Program auditing while also assisting with regulatory oversight. We help your Covered Entity (CE) remain compliant with HRSA through annual reviews of your 340B programs.

We encourage you to let our expert team support you with mock HRSA audits and assist you with notices from CMS and manufacturers, while also providing you with corrective action planning. As part of our process, we mimic the HRSA audit to see how you’d do if you were facing an actual audit while also performing a comprehensive gap analysis of your 340B program.

Why Is 340B Compliance Important?
The 340B Program requires drug manufacturers to sell outpatient drugs at a discount to CE’s. OPA and HRSA administer the program and oversee program compliance through annual audits, among other efforts.

If audits identify noncompliance issues, HRSA presents findings to CE’s and requires corrective action to continue in the 340B Program. Failure to maintain participation in the program can cost pharmacies a range of 20-50% on annual drug costs.:
Audit findings by HRSA over an 8-year span include the following 1,536 items:

561

Failures to maintain eligibility-related requirements (e.g., covered entities’ oversight of contract pharmacies).

546

Diversions of drugs to ineligible patients (e.g., patients’ health records are not maintained by the covered entity).

429

Duplicate discounts for prescribed drugs that may have been subject to both the 340B price and a Medicaid rebate.
