The 340B program is not serving its initial intent to benefit patients in need.
Attention providers! Congress did not clearly identify its intent for the 340B program, and while some entities are likely using the benefit program to help vulnerable patient populations, an alarming number of covered non-profit hospitals are displaying characteristics of for-profit hospitals. The savings from this program intended to be allocated to stretch resources for patients in need, is being used to drive profits over public service. Here’s what we know and what you can do to help:
