Annual Recertification Process for Hospital 340B Eligibility Now Underway

The annual recertification of hospital 340B eligibility began Aug. 6 and continues through Sept. 10. All hospitals with an active 340B ID as of July 1 and without a future termination date are required to recertify and will be removed from the 340B program if they do not complete the process. On Aug. 5, the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) began sending advanced notification emails to hospitals’ authorizing officials and primary contacts. Next, HRSA will send an email only to hospitals’ authorizing officials, containing the user names and passwords that will allow them to log into the 340B database and complete the recertification process. Hospitals should be sure to confirm that their authorizing official receives this important email. For more information, see HRSA’s updated 340B recertification user’s guide.
