Include 340B Programs And Save HTCs
Federal law mandates that all proceeds from the sale of factor must be utilized to fund an HTC. Some of these funds are used to support nurse practitioners and coordinators, genetic counselors, social workers, patient education, training and other services that help people living with hemophilia control their disorder and lead healthier lives.
If payers exclude 340B programs from participating in their networks,HTCs face a serious threat to their financial health and future sustainability.
HTCs ARE ALREADY IN MY NETWORK.
Although HTCs may already be a provider for clinic visits, the 340B programs they offer, many times are not.
NO FACTOR PROGRAM = NO HTCs.
Without the clinical expertise of the HTC, where will your covered members receive their comprehensive care?
WHAT CAN YOUR HEALTH PLAN DO?
Allow your covered members with hemophilia the choice of receiving their factor from the most cost effective source of factor — 340B programs offered by HTCs.
