Hospital Groups Refile Lawsuit to Reverse Cuts for 340B Hospitals

Sept. 5, 2018—The American Hospital Association (AHA), the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), and America’s Essential Hospitals, along with three hospital plaintiffs, refiled their lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) in the U.S. District Court of the District of Columbia to reverse Medicare payment cuts for many hospitals in the 340B Drug Pricing Program.

In July, an appeals court delayed a ruling on the merits of the case because no claims had been filed when the case was originally brought to prevent the rule from going into effect. Having filed claims that have progressed through the appeals process, the hospital plaintiffs have now addressed the court’s procedural concern, and with the hospital associations, have refiled the lawsuit asking for expedited relief.
