Abstract

Henry Ford Health System in Detroit is seeking new ways to lower and cover costs for the large, low-income population it serves in southeastern Michigan. Employing a strategy that couples the federal 340B Drug Pricing Program with a prescription assistance program of its own creation, Henry Ford has seen improvement in the following areas: Increased medication adherence. Reduced readmissions. Cost savings that are sufficient to expand services where expansion otherwise would not have been feasible.
