The 340B drug discount program came about from a section of the Veterans Health Care Act of 1992. The way the program works is pharmaceutical manufacturers provide drug discounts to public service agencies, such as Indian Health Services, children's hospitals, cancer centers and inner city hospitals. In return, these organizations participate in the government's Medicare and Medicaid programs. The discounts provided to these vulnerable Medicare and Medicaid covered populations assure service to patients who otherwise may not be able to access healthcare.
