AHA Statement on New HRSA Drug Pricing Website

Tom Nickels
Executive Vice President
American Hospital Association

April 1, 2019

 

The AHA is pleased that, in response to our successful lawsuit, the Health Resources and Services Administration today launched a new website to shine needed light on 340B drug pricing, which the government has found lacking. This website will help make sure hospitals participating in the program are not being overcharged by drug companies and that instances of price gouging can be uncovered and penalties enforced. As prescription drug prices continue to skyrocket, the 340B program is as crucial as ever in helping hospitals provide access to health care services for patients in vulnerable communities.
