SUNRx’s 340B prescription discount card program provides a conduit for covered entities to pass-along the 340B discounts to their low income and uninsured patients. Making the medications more affordable can help to improve patient compliance and outcomes, and can help hospitals to reduce their hospital readmission rates and avoid penalties.
Using the SUNRx system, covered entities can, with great flexibility, build an optional subsidy program for their low income, cash paying, or uninsured patients. Uninsured patients and others who may require financial assistance, are issued a prescription card by the covered entity’s staff during their visit, through the SUNRx system. Patients present their prescription and prescription card to the contract pharmacy, who adjudicates the 340B claim in real-time.
