The DRCHSD Program’s Vaccine Confidence Campaign has been a huge hit with DRCHSD sites.

Learn. Understand. Decide.

This creative campaign increases the feeling of confidence in the COVID-19 vaccination and acknowledges the need to understand the facts before making a decision. The communication informs and encourages people to make decisions that are right for them—and their communities.

340B Drug Pricing Program Hospital Guide

View a guide designed to provide rural hospital leadership with information regarding the 340B Drug Pricing Program.

This guide is intended to provide rural hospital leaders and rural health programs with relevant information to assist in managing the 340B Drug Pricing Program (340B Program) and to ensure compliance with Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) requirements.

  • Participating hospitals must meet 340B Program requirements.
  • Savings from purchasing medications at reduced cost may be used to expand the number of drugs and services offered to patients and increase the number of indigent patients served.
  • The eligible hospitals and health centers or covered entities participating in the 340B Program are responsible for ensuring program integrity and maintaining accurate records documenting compliance with all 340B Program requirements.
