340B Executive Order & Budget Implications

Governor Newsom signed Executive Order (N-01-19) to create a single-purchaser system of drugs in California. The Executive Order directs the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) to transition all pharmacy services for Medi-Cal managed care to Fee For Service (FFS) by January 2021, which could effectively end the savings received through the 340B program and ultimately limit services and access for California’s low-income, vulnerable communities. The Governor maintains this transition in the Proposed State Budget released in January and the revised State Budget released in May.

340B Survey: Implications if 340B savings are eliminated 

In April 2019, along with our partners at CPCA, we commissioned a 340B member survey. Below you can download the two-page fact sheet that highlights the results from that survey.
