UPDATE FOR COVERED ENTITY/CONTRACT PHARMACY REGISTRATIONS (4/16/2013)
The 340B covered entity and contract pharmacy registration window is now closed. The next registration period is scheduled for 7/1/2013 through 7/15/2013; registrations received from 4/1/2013 through 4/15/2013 will be processed for a program start date of 7/1/2013.

For hospitals: OPA requires copies of several documents to verify eligibility. Please review the supplemental hospital registration instructions carefully and submit the applicable documents on the same day that online registration is completed; registrations not accompanied by complete and correct documentation will be deleted and will not be reviewed (entities whose registrations have been deleted will be notified and can re-register until the last day of the registration period).
Please e-mail or fax materials to the appropriate address for your organization type; your Medicare provider number should be in the subject of the e-mail or prominently on the fax cover sheet:
|Disproportionate Share Hospitals
|Critical Access Hospitals
|Sole Community Hospitals

For Consolidated Health Center (CHC) and FQHC Lookalike program entities: The 340B database relies on HRSA's Electronic Handbook (EHB) system to pre-validate site information and increase the efficiency of the registration process. You will need to know your HRSA grant or lookalike designation number, and you will not be able to register unless the proposed site's EHB record is complete and accurate. If you need help locating your grant/designation number, contact the HRSA Bureau of Primary Health Care (BPHC) Help Line at email@example.com or 1-877-974-BPHC. If your EHB record is inaccurate, contact your HRSA project officer for assistance.
For other non-hospital covered entities: No additional documents are required at registration, although OPA may request additional information during our review of your registration material.
For contract pharmacy registrations: The 340B database utilizes information from the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to ensure consistent and accurate contract pharmacy registrations. Registrants will identify proposed contract pharmacies by entering DEA numbers or searching by pharmacy name/location. Signed contract certification forms are no longer required; covered entity authorizing officials will receive e-mailed requests to certify registrations (or terminations) online and will have 15 calendar days to respond. Requests will expire if not certified within 15 calendar days; terminations may be re-entered at any time but new contract pharmacy arrangements will not be accepted until the next open registration period.
ONLINE COVERED ENTITY CHANGE REQUESTS
Entities may follow the ‘Submit Change Request’ link on the 340B database home page to submit updated names, addresses, contact information and/or Medicaid billing details; all changes will be forwarded to the entity’s Authorizing Official for acceptance prior to being reviewed by OPA staff. For additional guidance, refer to the change request user guide located under the "Useful Links" section above.
Please note that paper change request forms are still required for entity termination requests, changes to Authorizing Officials and/or changes to contract pharmacy relationships or manufacturer information. Paper requests for changes that can be made online are no longer being accepted; entities do not need to resubmit previously submitted paper requests online.
