March 1, 2021

Congress created the 340B Drug Pricing Program in 1992 to protect safety-net hospitals from escalating drug prices by allowing them to purchase outpatient drugs at a discount from manufacturers. The program provides communities with access to life-saving services at no cost to taxpayers because the financial support comes from manufacturer discounts. Hospitals often use the savings they receive to provide services to low-income and uninsured patients.

This webinar will provide a brief and broad overview of the program. Then, AAMC colleagues will offer their perspectives on several areas, including an update on where things stand at the federal level; recent lawsuits; contract pharmacy issues; and other current topics of interest.
