The 340B Drug Pricing Program resulted from enactment of Public Law 102-585, the Veterans Health Care Act of 1992, which is codified as Section 340B of the Public Health Service Act.
RHN is a federally qualified health center providing eligibility to participate in the Federal 340B Discount Drug program.
Section 340B limits the cost of covered outpatient drugs to organizations like RHN. Even patients who are seeing a specialist such as a cardiologist or rheumatologist may be eligible for the discounted drugs as long as a provider from RHN co-signs the prescription and is participating in the overall care of the patient.
Are medications included with the co pay? admin
Your ability to pay should not be a barrier to receiving the health care you need. If you don’t think you have the financial means to pay for your visit, please make an appointment to speak with an RHN Registration Specialist to determine your eligibility for discounted fees on a sliding scale.
How much do I have to pay? admin
RHN offers a full range of services to meet your primary medical and oral health needs. Services include family medicine, pediatric and internal medicine, women’s health services, behavioral health, dental, laboratory, pharmacy, nutrition, and WIC.
Is RHN affiliated with a local hospital? admin
Because RHN is an independent health center, we have affiliation and referral agreements with for-profit and not-for-profit hospitals throughout the South Plains and Panhandle region. RHN has physicians with admitting privileges at local hospitals.
Do RHN Physicians, Dentists, Family Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants work as independent contractors? admin
Yes. RHN is designated a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) by the Health Resources & Services Administration (HRSA) and Bureau of Primary Care (BPHC) and is funded in part by a 3 Year Competing federal grant under the US Public Health Service Act (PHS). RHN’s federal funding is used to offset the losses we incur from providing services at a discounted rate to qualified individuals based on Federal income guidelines.
Is RHN an Indigent or Free Clinic? admin
No. RHN is not an Indigent or Free Clinic. RHN serves a broad range of individuals from every socio economic and payer group such as Medicaid, Medicare, Private Insurance, as well as, the Self-Pay. RHN offers cash and sliding fee discounts to patients that meet predetermined eligibility criteria.
