The next quarterly open registration period for hospitals not yet participating in the 340B Drug Pricing Program will take place Oct. 216.

Providers can register a new entity or contract pharmacy through the 340B Office of Pharmacy Affairs Information System (OPAIS). The OPAIS registration component requires authorizing officials and primary contacts to create individual user accounts. The Health Resources and Services Administration Office of Pharmacy Affairs (OPA) has posted OPAIS user guides and a recording of a recent webinar for covered entities.

Current covered entities should continue to monitor OPA’s website for updates regarding OPAIS and the annual recertification process.

Contact Director of Policy Erin O’Malley at eomalley@essentialhospitals.org or 202.585.0127 with questions.
