The Wyoming Department of Health (WDH) Communicable Disease Unit (CDU) participates in the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) 340B Drug Pricing Program. This program enables covered entities to purchase medications and testing supplies at a reduced rate stretching scarce Federal resources as far as possible, reaching more eligible patients, and providing more comprehensive services. This program is only available to public health nursing offices in Wyoming.
Expedited Partner Therapy (EPT)
Expedited Partner Therapy (EPT): the practice of treating the sex partners of persons with sexually transmitted infections (STIs) without an intervening personal assessment by a health care provider. EPT is a useful option to facilitate partner management when other management strategies are impractical or unsuccessful. CDU purchases STI EPT medications at retail prices and provides these medications to safety-net STI testing clinics at no cost.
We received confirmation the contraceptives can be ordered with 340B STD certification. Please see the memo below that was sent to PHN offices. If your office is interested in ordering contraceptives through the 340B program, please complete the checklist and submit to the CDU.
