340B Hospitals Ask Supreme Court Again to End Steep Medicare Drug Payment Cut

National hospital groups urged the U.S. Supreme Court last Friday to review and reverse a federal appellate decision upholding a steep cut in hospitals’ Medicare Part B reimbursement for 340B-purchased drugs.

The American Hospital Association (AHA), the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), and America’s Essential Hospitals’ May 28 brief was in response to the federal government’s May 13 brief urging the high court to leave the lower court’s decision alone. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit ruled 2-1 in late July 2020 that the U.S. Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services acted reasonably and within its statutory authority in imposing the nearly 30 percent cut in 2018. The appeals court in October denied the hospital groups’ motion for a rehearing. The groups asked the Supreme Court to take the case in February.
