Caravan Health leads the nation in making the numbers work in accountable care and central to that success is ensuring our safety net providers are not missing out on 80% of prescription drug discounts in 340B. We’ve designed a 340B program that allows providers participating in value-based care to capture far more referral claims than previously possible. By leveraging ACO data, providers can more than double 340B net discounts for Medicare patients.

Join the Florida Hospital Association and Caravan Health to learn about the hidden opportunities in the 340B program for Florida ACO participants. Presenters will share audit-ready strategies for improving claims capture and how to leverage 340B to improve patient care.
