Study Topic

The Committee is directed to:

  • Review the 340B Drug Pricing Program, with the objective of gaining a better understanding of how the program is implemented in Kansas and the experience of participating entities.

Topics for review should include:

  • Federal requirements of the program;
  • The role qualifying 340B providers, pharmacies, and pharmacy benefit managers play in the program;
  • The fiscal impact of such program on all participants;
  • Any federal or state law changes affecting such program;
  • Any recent marketplace developments of interest; and
  • The impact of such program on health care payers.

[Note: Provisions in 2021 SB 159 [Section 20 (c)] directed the Legislature to create an interim study committee on the federal 340B program. The law specified the Legislative Coordinating Council would appoint a special committee comprised of 13 members, with its chairperson appointed by the Speaker of the House of Representatives.]
