AHA reply brief in 340B appeal

The AHA, Association of American Medical Colleges, America’s Essential Hospitals, Eastern Maine Healthcare Systems, Henry Ford Health System and Adventist Health System's Park Ridge Health yesterday urged a federal appeals court to find that they are entitled a preliminary injunction in their lawsuit to prevent a nearly 30% Medicare payment reduction for many hospitals in the 340B drug saving program. In their brief (insert link), they seek remand of this case back to the trial court with a specific instruction from the appeals court to enter the injunction. At a minimum, the injunction would direct the Department of Health and Human Services to set outpatient prospective payment system payment rates for calendar year 2019 without the nearly 30% reduction and at the level needed to correct the past effects of the reduction.
