Below is a joint statement from the AAMC (Association of American Medical Colleges), America's Essential Hospitals (AEH), and the American Hospital Association (AHA):
"We are pleased that the U.S. Supreme Court unanimously agreed with us that the Department of Health and Human Services’ outpatient payment cuts to hospitals in the 340B Drug Pricing Program were unlawful. This decision is a decisive victory for vulnerable communities and the hospitals on which so many patients depend.
340B discounts help hospitals devote more resources to services and programs for vulnerable communities and increase access to prescription drugs for low-income patients.
Now that the Supreme Court has ruled, we look forward to working with the Administration and the courts to develop a plan to reimburse 340B hospitals affected by these unlawful cuts while ensuring the remainder of the hospital field is not disadvantaged as they also continue to serve their communities."
