Drugs purchased under the Public Health Service (PHS) Act.

(1) Providers dispensing or administering 340B drugs to Washington apple health clients are required to submit their valid medicaid provider number(s) or national provider identification (NPI) number to the PHS health resources and services administration, office of pharmacy affairs. See WAC 182-530-7500 for information on the drug rebate program.
(2) Drugs purchased under section 340B of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act can be billed to Washington apple health only by PHS-qualified entities. The Washington medicaid rebate process excludes 340B claims from invoicing only when the drug is billed by a medicaid provider number or national provider identification (NPI) number listed on the PHS office of pharmacy affairs national medicaid exclusion file. See WAC 182-530-7500 for information on the drug rebate program.

Providers who fail to submit a completed attestation form to the agency may receive a compliance audit and be at risk of duplicate discounts.
(4) With the exception of claim types identified in subsection (5) of this section, all 340B purchased drugs under the medicaid fee-for-service program must be billed to the medicaid agency at the 340B actual acquisition cost (340B AAC).
