January 2020 — The 2020 340B HRSA Grantee Recertification period for Comprehensive Hemophilia Treatment Centers is January 27 – February 24, 2020. According to a recent notification from HRSA, there are some notable changes to the process which require timely action:
- Prior to being able to recertify, Authorizing Agents (AOs) and Primary Contacts (PCs) must set up a user account in the 340B Office of Pharmacy Affairs Information System (340B OPAIS). This step is required BEFORE you begin the recertification process. Failure to create the account will result in removal from the program.
- AOs and PCs must create individual user accounts, and may no longer share access.
- All active 340B IDs associated with an AO’s user account must be updated in order for recertification to be completed by the established deadline.
- If any contact information needs to be changed or added since the last recertifcation, you may send all information to Jvolpe@hrsa.gov prior to the start of recertification.
If you would like further assistance with these new guidelines, there will be a webinar held on January 22, 2020 from 1-2pm EST. An email from HRSA with that information will be sent to all registered AOs and PCs currently on file.
You may also access online help and tutorials through the HRSA website or by contacting the Prime Vendor, Apexus, at 1-888-340-2787.
