The Alliance for Integrity and Reform of 340B (AIR340B) is a coalition of patient advocacy groups, clinical care providers and biopharmaceutical innovators dedicated to strengthening and sustaining the 340B program to ensure it directly supports access to outpatient prescription medicines for uninsured indigent patients.
Alliance members believe the 340B program is critically important to uninsured indigent patients and attention is needed to address concerns that the program has deviated from its original purpose and is leading to unintended consequences for patients.
