Faces of 340B
Dan Hargrave, Cleveland, OH
Dan Hargrave was diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Without his prescribed medication, Dan struggles to breathe, but he also struggled to afford the medication on his limited income. This is when a pharmacy technician at MetroHealth in Cleveland introduced Dan to the 340B drug pricing program. Thanks to 340B, Dan could save nearly $50 per month on out-of-pocket costs for the COPD medication that he needs to keep his condition in check. Now that he can afford his medication, Dan’s COPD is under control, and he does not have to make painful decisions such as whether to take his heart medication or his breathing medication. With many friends in similar health and financial situations, Dan is making sure they are aware of the 340B program and how it can help them access the medications they need.
