340B Drug Pricing Program

 

A letter from Health Resources and Services Administration:

Dear 340B Drug Pricing Program Stakeholder,
 
As many of you may know, the Health Insurance Marketplace opened for the new enrollment season on November 15. 8 million people have enrolled in Medicaid and CHIP since the first open enrollment period. It will be especially important for the safety-net community to know where to direct individuals and families for the most current and accurate resources. There are a number of things you can do to help. They include:
 
1. Visit Marketplace.cms.gov, where you’ll find brochures to share with colleagues and distribute to patients and at community venues; posters, application checklists, fact sheets, and more. Marketplace.cms.gov is the website for health care providers – YOU!
 
2. Encourage your family, patients, students, and other community members to visit HealthCare.gov to set up an account and explore enrollment options. Assistance is available in more than 150 languages 24/7 toll-free at 1-800-318-2596. It is incredibly important get the word out to and enroll people age 18-35 i.e. your students, your siblings, your children.
 
3. Write a message for health center, hospital, community newsletters, and local and school newspapers. We need you to help spread the word about the Health Insurance Marketplace.
 
Remember - open enrollment began November 15, 2014 and runs through February 15, 2015.
 
Thank you for all that you do.
