Why Should You Consider Temporary Staff Augmentation?

No time to recruit a new FTE with the right 340B skillset

HRSA audits are critical, and you can’t risk non-compliance

You cannot get approval for a new FTE in Pharmacy

Nobody on staff to properly train the new staff member

Key team-member left department or on extended leave

No team-members on staff with the necessary experience

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.

"Using a SpendMend Pharmacy expert on staff to help manage all of our 340B compliance tasks was a no-brainer. It’s cheaper, faster and easier than adding staff. And the audit experience and monthly summaries make it a breeze."
