Contract Pharmacies for the 340B Program - Revenue Contract


Description:

SUNY Downstate Medical Center (“SUNY-DMC”) is soliciting proposals from retail pharmacies, which have a valid New York State Pharmacy License, to enter into contract pharmacy relationships with SUNY-DMC to expand its 340B program. Section 602 of Public Health Law 102-585 (the “Veterans Health Care Act of 1992”) enacted section 340B of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act. Section 340B implements a drug pricing program by which manufacturers who sell covered outpatient drugs to particular covered entities (i.e.: SUNY-DMC) must agree to charge a price that will not exceed the amount determined under a statutory formula. A hospital, such as SUNY-DMC, is eligible to become a covered entity under section 340-B based on its status as a Disproportionate Share Hospital (DSH).   SUNY-DMC is seeking to enter into revenue contracts with retail pharmacies that will help SUNY-DMC expand its 340B access to outpatient prescriptions. While assisting SUNY-DMC in supporting your community’s uninsured and/or under-insured, your business benefits by a favorable dispensing fee, timely stock replenishment, and an improved relationship with the hospital.  SUNY-DMC intends to award contracts to pharmacies offering a positive annual return and are deemed to maximize revenue.  Mandatory Requirements: Each pharmacy location must have a New York State pharmacy license.1.
