17 Aug Times Record News: Rural hospitals threatened by big Pharma effort

“As the American Hospital Association has said, “For nearly 25 years, the 340B program has provided financial relief from high prescription drug costs to certain health care providers that care for low-income and indigent populations. Hospitals use the 340B savings to provide clinical pharmacy services, financial assistance to patients unable to afford their prescriptions, oncology services and community outreach programs, among others.”

This agreement has benefitted both sides. But as Medicaid enrollment increased under Obamacare while the range of drugs that are covered under the program has also grown, a furious lobbying effort is currently underway to dramatically alter the 340B program.”
