The U.S. federal government developed the 340B prescription drug-pricing program to enable hospitals and clinics that serve high volumes of low-income patients to purchase discounted outpatient drugs. Underinsured or underserved patients will now receive significant savings on the cost of their medications. Each qualifying individual will receive a discount, prescription drug card upon arrival at Mena Medical Associates. A yearly renewal is required for all cards.
Once the patient presents the card to the pharmacy, an evaluation of the prescription discount will be determined. Not all prescriptions will qualify for the discount, including opioids for pain management. Most local pharmacies are now in the 340B network with Mena Regional Health
System. For more information regarding the 340B Drug Pricing Program, contact Mena Medical Associates by calling 479-394-1414.
