340B Program Recertification Period
The 2023 HRSA, OPA 340B Program Recertification period for Hospitals opened August 14 and will run until September 11, 2023.
Covered entities must annually recertify their eligibility to remain in the 340B Drug Pricing Program and continue to purchase covered outpatient drugs at discounted 340B prices. Advanced email notification with preliminary information about the recertification process are sent to the Authorizing Official (AO) and Primary Contact (PC).
If the PC submits the recertification, the AO must review and attest to the recertification before the submission is sent to the Office of Pharmacy Affairs (OPA) for review.
Authorizing Officials (AOs) and Primary Contacts (PCs) must set up a user account in the 340B Office of Pharmacy Affairs Information System (340B OPAIS). Failure to set up accounts will result in not being able to view accounts or conduct recertification, thus removal from the 340B Program.
AOs and PCs must create individual user accounts, they will not be able to share access. All active 340B ID’s associated with an AOs user account must be updated in order for recertification to be completed by the established deadline.
