Half of Congressional Black Caucus Asks CMS to End Medicare Drug Payment Cuts for 340B Hospitals

Half of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) has asked Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Administrator Chiquita Brooks-LaSure to end the nearly 30% cut in Medicare Part B drug payments to 340B hospitals.

Reps. Robin Kelly (D-Ill.) and Lisa Blunt Rochester (D-Del.) led 27 of their CBC colleagues in writing the Sept. 24 letter to Brooks-LaSure, the first Black woman to lead CMS. The caucus has 57 members—two senators, 53 representatives, and two non-voting delegates, all Democrats. Neither senator, Cory Booker (D-N.J.) and Raphael Warnock (D-Ga.), signed, although that is not shocking since bicameral sign-on letters are rare.
