Alliance Update
  • Reminder: The 340B Program Recertification Period is Open!
  • The 2023 HRSA, OPA 340B Program Recertification period for HRSA Grantees and Indian Health Service will be January 30-February 27, 2023.

    Prior to being able to recertify, Authorizing Officials (AOs) and Primary Contacts (PCs) must set up a user account in the 340B Office of Pharmacy Affairs Information System (340B OPAIS). Failure to set up user accounts will result in not being able to view accounts or conduct recertification, thus removal from the 340B Program. AOs and PCs must create individual user accounts, they will not be able to share access. All active 340B IDs associated with an AOs user account must be updated in order for recertification to be completed by the established deadline.

    For assistance with the 340B OPAIS, it is strongly encouraged to utilize the online help that is available for your convenience. HRSA also has information and tutorials available on our website at For further assistance please contact the 340B call center operated by the 340B Prime Vendor Program at or 1-888-340-2787 (Monday – Friday, 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. EST).

  • Save the Date for Alliance Meetings for 2023!
  • by Theresa Parker, Administrator

    Hemophilia Alliance has been working diligently to ensure a full schedule of meetings for the upcoming year. After the difficult years of 2020-2022, it is refreshing to get back to “business as normal” and continue the trend of in-person meetings. There is a lot of activity in the hemophilia community, and it’s been an interesting exercise to navigate around these events.

    We are excited to announce several new meetings in 2023 to bring together professionals in the blood disorder field to discuss important issues and advancements. These meetings will provide an important platform for attendees to network, learn from industry experts and share their own experiences. We hope to see you at one or more of these exciting events.

    Mark your calendars to SAVE THE DATE!
