The GAO is asking 340B hospitals that applied to get their eligibility restored if they give low-income uninsured patients a break on drug prices at their contract and in-house pharmacies.

340B Report Exclusive: GAO Is Asking Hospitals if They Share 340B Savings with Low-Income Uninsured Patients at Contract Pharmacies

A federal watchdog agency wants to know if 340B hospitals give low-income uninsured patients a break on drug prices at their contract and in-house pharmacies as part of the agency’s evaluation of a law that helps some hospitals forced out of 340B during the COVID-19 pandemic get their 340B eligibility back.

Why the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) study is asking hospitals about sharing 340B drug savings with poor patients without insurance is unknown. Lowering what such patients pay for drugs is not a 340B program requirement (although many 340B covered entities say they do so). Nor is it a condition for a hospital to get its 340B eligibility restored through the end of this year under the new law.
