340B Prescription Drug Program

The 340B Prescription Drug Program supports our role as a safety-net provider in offering vital healthcare services in the communities we serve. The program is only for hospitals that provide a high level of services to low-income individuals or serve isolated rural communities. In 2017, Adventist Health Selma and Adventist Health Reedley provided:

  • $7.3 million from 340B savings
  • $6 million invested in the community
  • 85% of Medicare, Medicaid and uninsured patients
  • $2.7 million provided in uncompensated care

In 2017, Adventist Health Hanford provided:

  • $770 thousand from 340B savings
  • $35 million invested in the community
  • 75% of Medicare, Medicaid and uninsured patients
  • $4.6 million provided in uncompensated care

Adventist Health Selma and Adventist Health Reedley are located in the Central Valley of California. Adventist Health Selma is a 57-bed acute care community hospital. Adventist Health Reedley is a 49-bed acute care hospital that has two residency programs. Adventist Health Hanford is a 153-bed acute care community hospital.

The 340B program has allowed us to develop programs for those who cannot afford prescriptions. Some of these programs are:

  • Financial assistance for patients who can’t afford prescriptions
  • Medication, supplies and transportation assistance for medically indigent and homeless patients
  • Transportation to appointments, health education classes and support groups
