Covered Entity Search Start at www.hrsa.gov/opa Click on this link Click on this link Select the entity type and enter data to find a specific entity CE Decision to Not Use 340B Drugs Carve-Out When a CE enrolls, its data are entered in the CE database. CE Data If the entity is NOT using 340Bpurchased drugs for their Medicaid

fee-for-service patients, the form will indicate that the entity will not bill Medicaid for drugs purchased at 340B prices. The Medicaid Exclusion File Reasons why most 340B entities exclude Medicaid prescriptions from their contract pharmacy: Most contract pharmacies and Medicaid agencies do not establish an arrangement to prevent duplicate discounting. Medicaid reimbursement formulas based on actual 340B cost may not provide margin sufficient to cover costs. Most clinics and pharmacies are aware that the Medicaid

anti-kickback statute is very broad and are wary of including Medicaid prescriptions in their contracts. CE Decision to Use 340B Drugs Carve-In When a CE enrolls, its data are entered in the CE database. CE Data If the entity is using 340B-purchased drugs for their Medicaid fee-for-service patients, the form must display the Medicaid number and state. When a CE Has More Than One NPI

When a CE enrolls, its data are entered in the CE database. CE Data The OPA database is capable of handling entities that have more than 1 NPI and wish to bill different state Medicaid agencies in a different manner (e.g., carve-out in 1 state, and use 340B for another). On the registration form, the entity must specify that the NPI is listed in association with particular states. Alternative Agreement With State To the extent that a CE is either: Unable to comply with standard methods discussed

for reporting NPI OR Wishes to utilize an alternative method that will also prevent a duplicate discount The CE must work with its state Medicaid agency and OPA to establish sufficient safeguards.

Medicaid provider number used to bill Medicaid for all 340B-purchased drugs (e.g., entity may not pick and choose) If the appropriate Medicaid billing number is not listed on the OPA database and 340B drugs are used to fill Medicaid prescriptions, the entity should contact OPA immediately, so that the correct number can be included on the OPA exclusion file database
