HHS has asked the U.S. Supreme Court to decline taking up 340B hospital suit on Medicare Part B reimbursement.

HHS Asks U.S. Supreme Court to Reject 340B Hospital Request to Hear Medicare Part B Case

While 340B hospitals eagerly await to see the Biden administration’s plans for Medicare Part B reimbursement, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) last night asked the U.S. Supreme Court to reject an effort by hospital groups to challenge the Trump Administration’s steep cuts.

Although the government in yesterday’s brief says the law is on its side, hospitals are crossing their fingers that relief could be on the way. As 340B Report broke yesterday, the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) this week sent its proposed OPPS rule to the White House for review. The hospitals hope they can persuade the administration to reverse the cuts on in the rule. In its brief, the government pointed out that the appeals court ruling it defends “does not preclude petitioners from advancing their policy arguments in future annual rulemakings; the court of appeals concluded that the rate adjustments were permitted, not compelled, by the statute.”
