340B Provider Groups Decry Federal Judge’s PrEP Coverage Decision

340B HIV provider groups have slammed a recent federal court decision that could have far-reaching implications on access to a host of preventive health care services.

On Sept. 7, Judge Reed O’Connor of the United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas ruled that mandating private health insurance coverage of pre-exposure prophylaxis or PrEP, a daily medication used to prevent HIV infection, is unconstitutional. The decision has implications that extend far beyond PrEP, and casts doubt on whether the Affordable Care Act (ACA) provision requiring no-cost coverage of certain preventive services will be preserved in future.
