The House Energy and Commerce Committee held a hearing on legislative proposals to prevent and respond to generic drug shortages. In comments submitted last month, AHA urged the committee to reject provisions in its draft legislation proposals that would limit patient access to 340B drugs and consider additional proposals that would protect the supply chain for essential medications. 
 
Witnesses at today’s hearing included representatives from Civica, the American Society for Health System Pharmacists, Healthcare Supply Chain Association, Healthcare Distribution Alliance, and Association for Accessible Medicines.
