Major Pro-340B Legislation Introduced in Congress

Published: Wednesday, June 13, 2018 by Moayad Zahralddin

AAHAM continues to work on this important issue and we have exciting news to share from 340B Health!  

Representative Doris Matsui (D-CA) introduced a bill today that would help the 340B Program (bill # to be determined). 

The Stretching Entity Resources for Vulnerable (SERV) Communities Act would clarify the intent of the 340B program and specify that 340B savings may be used by covered entities in ways that support their community.   It would enforce laws that were enacted in 2010 with the ACA and require HHS to launch 340B ceiling price database and require manufacturers to pay civil monetary penalties if they knowingly overcharge 340B covered entities.  The act would also require HRSA to audit manufacturers at similar rates to 340B covered entities. As a reminder, HRSA has conducted 800 audits since 2012 and 77% of those are hospital audits. Among its other provisions, the act would notably reverse the Medicare Part B cuts and require CMS to pay 340B hospitals at the same rates (ASP + 6%) as non-340B hospitals going back to January 1, 2018.
