Judge tosses AHA challenge to 340B cuts

View Article

A federal judge on Friday allowed the CMS to move forward with its planned $1.6 billion cut to a federal drug discount program.

U.S. District Judge Rudolph Contreras ruled that the American Hospital Association, Association of American Medical Colleges, America’s Essential Hospitals and three hospitals prematurely sued the CMS, since the proposed 340B program cuts have not gone into effect yet.
