As Contract Pharmacy Losses Climb into the Billions, Fine for Overcharging 340B Providers Gets Closer to $6,000 Per Instance Mark

The federal fine for overcharging a 340B covered entity just went up from $5,883.00 to $5,953.00 per each instance of overcharging.

A 340B program regulation that took effect in January 2019 says that any drug manufacturer that knowingly and intentionally charges a covered entity more than the ceiling price for a covered outpatient drug may be subject to a CMP not to exceed $5,000 for each instance of overcharging. Congress passed a law in 2015 that adjusts HHS CMPs for inflation.
