You are invited to attend 340B University

Apexus offers 340B University, a foundational and award-winning education program designed to meet the practical needs of 340B Prime Vendor Program (PVP) participants and other program stakeholders. Topics cover the 340B fundamentals; therefore, the education is intended for those new to 340B, and is not intended as an annual update. 

340B University will be presented for all 340B stakeholders and will feature a broad range of educational sessions, including content regarding the following:

     • 340B Basics - Introduction to the 340B Drug Pricing Program

     • Program integrity and audits

     • Implementation/Policy - Maintain compliant 340B purchasing practices at entity and retail/contract pharmacy

     • Pricing - Calculation and integrity concerns

     • 340B and Medicaid - Overview on billing and duplicate discount policies

Take advantage of the opportunity for hands-on practical advice to help with 340B Program implementation. Specially designed breakout sessions will help you enhance program integrity by learning from industry experts and networking with peers.

Upon completion of the 340B University event, participants will be able to:

     • Describe the history, intent, and statutory principles of the 340B Program.

        340B Program participation.

     • Describe the role of the manufacturer, wholesaler, Prime Vendor, and covered-entity in 340B pricing integrity.

     • Identify the roles and responsibilities of 340B implementation and monitoring that
