AHA Statement on Potential New Payment Model for Part B Drugs

 

 

Rick Pollack

AHA President and CEO

October 25, 2018

 

 

America’s hospitals and health systems are pleased that President Trump and his administration are focused on reining in out-of-control drug prices, which continue to threaten patient access and the ability of providers to deliver the highest quality of care. We look forward to reviewing the details of the model closely, including its impact on 340B hospitals and the patients they serve.
