On February 15, the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services (DHS) held the first meeting of its 340B Workgroup.

The workgroup is scheduled to meet almost weekly through February and March and is tasked with helping DHS identify a process to acknowledge contract pharmacies and accurately and effectively identify and exclude 340B drug claims to allow 340B covered entities and the patients they serve to continue to receive the benefits of 340B savings.
