340B Database Will Be Temporarily Unavailable

9 Aug 2017

The OPA 340B database will be unavailable from August 15, 2017 through mid-September 2017 as HRSA transitions to a new database system.  During this time, covered entities will not be able to submit change requests or terminations.  The new database system, called the 340B Office of Pharmacy Affairs Information System (340B OPAIS), will include a secured platform for covered entities to access 340B ceiling price information.  For more information, please see the below alert from HRSA:

“The 340B Office of Pharmacy Affairs Information System (340B OPAIS) will be unavailable from August 15, 2017 through mid-September, 2017.  As part of the transition to the new 340B Office of Pharmacy Affairs Information System (340B OPAIS), the current 340B database will be offline and unavailable as of August 15, 2017.  HRSA will begin to archive the information in the current 340B database in preparation for the release of the registration component of the new 340B OPAIS in mid-September 2017.  Specific dates will be forthcoming. During this time, covered entities will not be able to submit change requests or terminations.  However, external users can continue to verify covered entity participation, manufacturer participation, and contract pharmacy locations in the 340B Program with reports that will be available on the 340B Drug Pricing Program webpage as of August 15, 2017.  Questions regarding the registration component of the new 340B OPAIS, including emergent issues related to a covered entity record, can be directed to the 340B Prime Vendor Program at (888) 340-2787.”
