This is part two of a two-part series on 340B.
During the 340B Coalition in Washington, D.C., I had the opportunity to meet with current ScriptPro customers, veterans to rookies, who love our 340B Management Package. I never get tired of hearing testimonies from sites after recent HRSA audits and passing with flying colors!
Below are a few stories shared with me during this tradeshow.
- A look alike Federally Qualified Health Care (FQHC) in New York that serves a broad population with expensive infectious diseases hired a firm to conduct a pseudo HRSA audit for them. Out of 10,000 scripts audited one failed. That is a 99.999% success rate!
- A Disproportionate Share Hospital (DSH) in Missouri that primarily serves children had passed their audit and had a lawyer on retainer for three months “just in case”. Their lawyer stopped by the booth to share she did not have any work to complete in those three months.
- A Critical Access Hospital (CAH) in California that serves an economically deprived population with expensive infectious diseases expressed to Ann Schneider, ScriptPro Sales Director, Institutional Midwest, how they paid $800,000 to resolve a HRSA audit prior to ScriptPro installation. Now they have no fear of an audit.
With ScriptPro’s 340B system operating in real-time, you can take advantage of immediate 340B status determination while your pharmacy is processing a prescription, reducing audit risk and disqualification. The system also automatically sets correct claim codes, which meets new rules coming into play for Medicaid.
Have an audit coming up? We provide our 340B Management Package customers with a customizable data extract tailored to your audit needs. You will be able to show auditors, with confidence, detailed insurance transactions to prove no duplicate discounts, as well as detailed inventory transactions records to prove no diversion.
340B is complicated. We can help.
