Statement on 340B Court Decision

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

WASHINGTON, DC–America’s 340B hospitals are pleased with the District Court’s decision and urge the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to follow the judge’s directive to promptly resolve the harm caused by its unlawful cuts to Medicare reimbursement for certain 340B hospitals. The ruling reaffirmed that the 2018 cuts were unlawful and extended that ruling to the 2019 cuts. Owing to the complexity of the Medicare program, the judge gave HHS first crack at fashioning a remedy for its unlawful actions. He also asked for a report from HHS on its progress on or before August 5, 2019. We urge HHS to promptly comply with the judge’s ruling and restore to 340B hospitals all funds that have been unlawfully withheld.
