Hospitals Ask U.S. Supreme Court to End “Crushing” Medicare Payments Cuts for 340B Drugs

Three national hospital groups and three hospitals yesterday asked the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn a federal appeals court’s 2-1 July 2020 decision that the nearly 30 percent cut since 2018 in 340B hospitals’ drug reimbursement under the hospital outpatient prospective payment system (OPPS) “rests on a reasonable interpretation of the Medicare statute.”

If the decision stands, the hospital plaintiffs said in their petition for review, the “rate cut will devastate 340B hospitals and the communities they serve.”
