Don’t Miss Out On These Resources

The 340B Program is complicated. It’s intimidating, and let’s be honest, at times downright confusing, for newcomers and veterans alike. Those of us in the 340B world know that managing a successful 340B Program requires the juggling of what feels like a million things at once. Between keeping up with state Medicaid requirements, HRSA audit preparation, multiple third-party administrators, NDC crosswalks and formularies, OPAIS registrations, and beyond, it is easy to feel overwhelmed. 

That’s why we at Turnkey are committed to trying our very best to make your lives just a tiny bit easier. Today, we’re doing that by providing a list of some of the best resources in the industry (besides us of course). We encourage you to take advantage of all of these wonderful resources so that you can take your 340B Program to the next level.
