Finding and purchasing the drug at this price can be cumbersome. Here’s how to find a program to help.
- Go to https://340bopais.hrsa.gov/, and search by zip code to find a participating clinic near your home.
- Call the clinic to ask them how low-income or uninsured patients can access the 340B price on insulin through their facility.
- You will need a doctor’s appointment if you aren’t already managed by a provider in that area, but as part of 340B, the clinic should have a program for you to have an appointment at a low cost, too.
- Once you have your appointment, and your provider writes the prescription for insulin, tell the health care team that you want to fill the prescription through the low-income or cash-pay program they told you about in step 2. The team should be able to help you get your prescription sent to the correct pharmacy for you to be able to purchase the insulin at the reduced, 340B price.
