Navigating the 340B Drug Program in the Family Planning Clinic Webinar - (CEs available until December 31, 2014)

The "Navigating the 340B Drug Program in the Family Planning Clinic Webinar" was held on October 17, 2013, 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. Instructions to access the roster, evaluation and continuing education (CE) certificate are listed below. Direct any content questions to your Women’s Health Regional Nurse Consultants.

Description: Registered nurses, coordinators, pharmacists, administrative, financial staff and/or anyone who is involved in the Family Planning program and specifically for those who order birth control methods through their 340B account will find the webinar helpful in answering questions about the 340B program.

The 340B program allows a Title X Family Planning agency to purchase birth control methods at a 50-70% discount and without this program decreased family planning funding will be even more distressing. The 340B program is administered through HRSA (Health Resources and Services Administration), the federal agency who oversees this program and has strict regulations and requirements that must be met. For example, North Carolina has had two HRSA audits in 2012 in local health departments and more audits are scheduled (nationally and cannot exclude North Carolina) in 2013. The webinar will provide tools and information staff will need to assure compliance with the 340B program.

Compliance with the state mandatory reporting laws has been a longstanding Title X requirement beginning with its inclusion in the FY 1999 appropriations language. The Federal Office of Population Affairs (OPA) has increased its efforts towards ensuring that each Title X agency is compliant with state laws regarding notification of the reporting of child abuse, child molestation, sexual abuse, rape or incest, as well as federal anti-trafficking laws. OPA and the Women’s Health Branch (WHB) will continue to closely monitor Title X agencies regarding adherence to federal and state laws, internal policies and completion and storage of yearly training documentation. The Title X Orientation webinar to the federal Title X program is also important for all funded family planning staff to understand the program and its requirements.

Updated Title X Training Requirements

As of October 3, 2013, Title X training requirements have changed and are outlined below. This updated information supersedes previous guidance emails. For the required trainings’ roster, handouts etc., please see numbers 1-3 training sections/links below.

As of May 1, 2014, the online Title X Orientation course was removed by the federal Title X program due to the recently released new Title X Quality FP (QFP) Guidelines. When the Women’s Health Branch receives more details about the future of the course, the information will be emailed to the Title X agencies. In the interim, legibly write on the new employee’s FP/Title X Required Yearly Training Sheet under 2014 – "The Title X Orientation course is being updated as of May 1, 2014.
