340B Program HRSA Recertification Period is Open
340B (Sept. 10, 2021) –The 340B Program HRSA recertification period of hospitals is from Aug. 16 to Sept. 13, 2021. As of today, only 68.72 percent of Critical Access Hospitals have recertified. Prior to being able to recertify, Authorizing Officials and Primary Contacts must set up a user account in the 340B Office of Pharmacy Affairs Information System. Failure to set up user accounts will result in not being able to view accounts or conduct recertification, thus removal from the 340B Program. AOs and PCs must create individual user accounts. AOs and PCs will not be able to share access. All active 340B ID’s associated with an AOs user account must be updated in order for recertification to be completed by the established deadline. It is the responsibility of the covered entity to ensure they have created their accounts and updated contact information for all sites prior to recertification to allow successful completion.

For assistance with the 340B OPAIS, It is strongly encouraged to utilize the online help available for your convenience. HRSA also has information and tutorials available on their website at https://www.hrsa.gov/opa/340b-opais/index.html.
