Episode 88: Answering More of Your 340B Questions
January 29, 2024
We are returning to a popular episode format we aired early last year, when we consulted with 340B Health’s expert staff to answer your most pertinent 340B questions. As we start another busy year for 340B, we help you prepare for the action by answering your questions about the Genesis court decision, 340B activity in state legislatures, Medicare Part B repayments, and more. (Transcript)
- Patient Definition After the Genesis Decision One listener wonders how the recent Genesis court decision might affect 340B patient definition issues. We discuss the implications, the status of HRSA’s 1996 patient definition guidelines, and expectations for covered entities in the wake of this decision.
- Federal and State 340B Action In response to listeners’ question, we discuss how 340B might come up on Capitol Hill and in state legislatures this year. After a busy first half of the 118th Congress for 340B, we discuss how the election year may influence issues on Capitol Hill and how lawmakers in numerous statehouses are already considering changes to 340B in their states.
- Timing of Repayments for Medicare Cuts Listeners inquire about upcoming Medicare Part B repayments, an increase in manufacturer overcharges for 340B drugs, last year’s HRSA 340B audit findings, and the expected effects of the government’s Medicare drug price-setting program under the Inflation Reduction Act.
