The federal 340B Drug Pricing Program has been helping covered entities expand and enhance their services for underserved populations since 1992. The idea was to require manufacturers to give significant discounts on outpatient drugs, clinic-administered drugs, over-the-counter drugs with prescriptions, biologics and insulin. The intent of the program was to provide affordable medicine to eligible patients and provide more comprehensive services.
The 340B Drug Pricing Program is one part of a safety net designed to support healthier communities. When the program began, eligibility was tightly focused on traditional safety-net hospitals, outpatient clinics, and community health centers. The program was successful and soon expanded to more points of care. The program is featured in communities across the country, and from rural hospitals to urban health systems, each community has its own mix of economic and demographic conditions to navigate. Each participating organization has flexibility with how they choose to channel its savings, so not every version of the program is the same. Yet, they all have the same purpose: to provide affordable healthcare for those in need.
HHM Health is proud to be participating in the 340B Drug Pricing Program. We believe this program is tremendous and provides a much-needed boost to supplying affordable healthcare. Now, this program strongly focuses on the pharmaceutical aspect of healthcare. Still, in the future, we hope another program comes forward, or this one expands, to make more aspects of healthcare inclusive and affordable for everyone across the United States. For now, HHM Health aims to focus on providing affordable healthcare to the Dallas community.
At HHM Health, we strive to further the great community of Dallas through our work in the medical field. At our medical centers, HHM’s healthcare professionals provide quality healthcare to all their neighbors with love, compassion, and respect. We are fully equipped to handle any situation related to the health of an individual and provide affordable healthcare to all patients in need.
Around Dallas, communities have suffered from a healthcare crisis for several years, and our goal at HHM Health is not simply to help it but instead to solve it. With 39% of the Dallas population uninsured, it is important for people to receive the health care they need without drowning in medical bills. HHM Health guarantees safe, affordable healthcare for all regardless of background, race, ethnicity, or sexual orientation.
We offer services that include family practice, women’s health, pediatrics, dental, vision, behavioral health, imaging and pharmacy. If you need it, we provide it! HHM Health values compassion, advocacy, respect, excellence, and servant’s hearts, demonstrating how much we truly care. HHM Health is constantly training our healthcare professionals to ensure they use the newest medical practices. As the Dallas community continues to grow, we hope to open more centers in Dallas to continue to serve the community and those living in it!
