Hospital Groups to Continue Fight to Reverse Cuts for 340B Hospitals

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, the American Hospital Association (AHA), the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), and America’s Essential Hospitals released the following statement:

“As today’s decision stated, ‘The question presented is not whether they may obtain judicial review of their challenges….but when and how they may do so through the special-review scheme for Medicare claims.’

For more than 25 years, the 340B program has played a critical role in helping hospitals expand access to care for vulnerable patients and communities, with drug discounts that cost the government nothing.

We will continue our fight to reverse these unwarranted cuts and protect access for patients, and we expect to refile promptly in district court.”
