A hospital group, drug manufacturers, and health care lawyers gave 340B Report their views on recent court rulings in five 340B contract pharmacy lawsuits.

Hospitals, Drug Manufacturers, and Lawyers Give their Takes on 340B Contract Pharmacy Rulings

A hospital group says two federal district judges got it right, but one got it wrong, on whether drug manufacturers are legally bound to provide 340B drug discounts for drugs dispensed at contract pharmacies.

In a Nov. 6 statement, 340B Health President and CEO Maureen Testoni said U.S. Senior District Judge Sarah Barker of the Southern District of Indiana and U.S. Chief District Judge Freda Wolfson of the District of New Jersey “have firmly stated that drug companies participating in 340B do not have the right to unilaterally impose restrictions on the provision of price discounts. Those courts have also upheld the government’s ability to enforce the law.”
