340B Drug Discount Program 

This program requires that drug manufacturers provide outpatient drugs to eligible Premier patients at significantly reduced prices, allowing us to stretch resources and help more patients. To participate in this program, the prescription must be filled with contracted pharmacies.

Our clinical team works with hospitals for your continued care at Premier after you are discharged from a hospital stay. This includes scheduling follow-up appointments and case management of your care plan.
